Now that I have recommended that you spray your palette to keep things fresh, every time you go out, it leaks.

That is actually why I switched to a travel palette even when I am just going to the local art center to teach.

But my palette still was leaking and getting all over my supplies. Then they get messy and sticky and it was such a nuisance.

Simple solution: put it in a zipper bag.

No more messes.

So obvious yet I am surprised how often it is not thought of and how long it took me to think of it!

(My practical genius only appears once or twice a year)

You can do the same with your big palette. Keep it in a large bag separate from everything else and keep it flat if you can.
