So you have already squirted all your paint into your palette and it is hard and crusty by now. Every time you try to get rich color you have to scrub and scrub at it with your brush, possibly ruining that gorgeous sable and you still can’t seem to get a nice rich dark color. What to do?

Instead of chiseling it out and deciding to start over, just spray your palette really well, put a wet sponge inside of it and keep it covered. Leave it for a day or two and viola! your paint is nice and juicy again.
