How to Make an Artists Palette Miniature - free tutorial

  1. First find thin some Balsa wood. You can buy packs of this extremely cheaply.

  2. Cut out the shape of a palette using nail scissors or a craft knife.

  3. Push a hole through the palette using a sharp point and work it around to make it bigger.

  4. Rub off any rough edges with a small piece of sand paper.

  5. Paint the palette with one or two coats of varnish as this will strengthen it. You can either use a varnish with a wood stain or add a bit of brown acrylic paint to the varnish.

  6. Put some splatters of acrylic paint on the palette in various colours to give it a used look.
