- An old lid of some kind. Anything waterproof will do. I normally use a small plastic lid but I have an old biscuit tin lid that I keep for the days when I want a big palette.
- An old rag or some kitchen towel. Anything that holds water and won't disintegrate will work fine. Tissues don't work well.
- Grease-proof paper or baking paper. you know, the kind of thing used for making cakes. Make sure it's not the waxy waterproof kind, as that won't work because it won't let the moisture through.
Once you've got these items fold up the rag or kitchen paper and so that it fits snugly on the palette.
Make sure the rag is soaked with water and then pour off the excess.

That's it. Get painting!
