Welcome to Jacksarge Painting
Great tutorial! Though I already have my DIY, it's good to see other peoples work :)
I started to use the AP one a few months ago and haven't looked back. I tired to make a few which failed and bought an watercolour artist version that turned out to be nigh on A3 size- it wouldn't even fit on my painting table! LOLSo, basically, even though the AP version is quite small, I'm sticking with it for now. :)
Cool! I find it really useful. I'm probably going to try a home-made version for my next palette.
I think you're right, if I had been able to make a decent one myself I would definitely have gone with the home made version. The AP Palette is good but small. The best thing about the whole product is actually the sponge which holds water well! After thinking about it I might try to create something a4 size then I won't be replacing the blotting paper so much. A couple of times a session sometimes.
