How to make your Artist’s Palette Dress Up Craft
  1. Cut a kidney bean shape out of the white cardboard.  Using scissors, carefully, cut out a one inch circle for the thumb hole.  (see photos)
  2. Using paint, paint small circles of different colored paint along the outside of the palette.  Allow the paint to dry.  (see photos)
  3. Your palette is now complete.  Collect a dry paintbrush and smock to complete your outfit.  Hang your latest artwork around the house, on a clothesline, or on the refrigerator.  Invite your family to your art show and explain each of the pieces of art.  Happy painting!
