Anyone who's been to my studio knows I like to share this little money saving tip. I've always used disposable palette paper. Like any illustrator looking to cut down costs, I figured there had to be a cheaper solution than the pads of palette paper I was buying at art stores. I tried wax paper, but it was too flimsy. Then I tried Reynolds Freezer paper... Viola! It works perfectly with acrylics or oils. I usually buy it for under $4 (75 sq. ft on a roll, 18 inches wide). I love that I can cut it to a larger size, affording me plenty of real estate to mix color. There you go, I just saved you a buck or two.
