    Hi.. we met one time in Sonoma or Napa, not sure. Anyway instead of enamel pan I use Rubbermaid collapsible 1 quart pan with airtight seal.
    about 10-12 inches in diameter. I leave the pans collapsed I have 2 of them, blacks and blues in one, yellow and greens in other. collapsed they are about 1 1/4 ” high and perfect as palettes. Simply put cover on, press down hand on top, burp air out and paint will hold for weeks. mine are dark blue in color, I bought them at a yardsale for 25 cts ea. used now for several years.

    I usually wrap whatever I mixed my paint in/on with plastic wrap and usually use it in a week or so. Ikea has some wonderful sets of containers with quite a few small ones. I’ ll mix larger quantities in those so I can close the lid. Right now I have this amazing blue-green color I mixed with string gel and glass gel medium to paint on aluminum foil. Thank you for the video instruction, it is how I found your website.
