How to Construct an Artist’s Palette using Foliage
2. Cut a strip of cardboard to go between the two pieces to give the palette some depth. This will also allow us to place some test tubes/water containers in the top of the palette for other decoration later.
4. Glue the second palette piece to the other side of the strip. Allow to dry
6. Glue the leaf (or overlapping leaves as I have done) to the top of the palette, leaving some overhang to glue down the sides. The sides do not have to be covered completely as we will put some further foliage there.
8. Decorate the walls of the palette by gluing or pinning overlapping leaves – here I have used camellia leaves as they are long lasting out of water retaining their bright glossy green colour. Make sure to do the inside of the thumb hole as well.
