If I should chose from having an eyeliner with either a brush that has been used all day and only wiped clean or one that has been cleaned in water I had used for hours - so it looks darks -, and then wiped I would choose the last one. Because whatever that has been on has been diluted in the water, if not rinsed completely of.

And agree with Shannon: Opaque containers are the way to go =)

I totally agree Kristal.
It's best to setup your paints, brushes & supplies the same every time so you know where everything is to save time. Searching for something makes you look unprofessional to clients. I have been into art for decades and its the same for every technique, your paints are always in the same place on your pallet, no matter what kind of paint you use.

Tossing things is a habit to get out of and keeping the mindset of 'placing' things where they should be. That will be most helpful on the crazy days with an endless line because you will think white and without even looking, the hand automatically grabs the correct brush from its place, dipping into the correct paint and so on.

My setup evolved to a nice tight one that will be most helpful during classes where students are elbow to elbow and quite a few parties that are the same way.

And it all fits on my TV tray I bring to gigs. I reciently got a new pallet but it is only an inch wider, 12"x12". The mirrors & wipes are perched on my rolling artbox that holds trash & extra water.

Keeping everything organized may seem hard at first but you get used to it, being most thankful you did, many times over ; )
Cheers,
Susan

Nothing gets completely rinsed off in coffee water.

Hi Bec~

Excuse me while I interrupt the muddy water discussion.

I just viewed your Fairy Princess video. Loved the blending and nice lines.

Not meaning to be rude or referring to anyone in particular here....just a general observation..... For those who don't rinse and use one sponge/brush per color.....
How does having clean looking water make a good impression if your sponges, brushes, and pallets are dark and grungy looking from caked on makeup?
I prefer to have clean tools and cloudy water. I use a two container rinse, so the first rinse gets the paint off and the second rinses out the residue. If the second rinse gets cloudy, I dump the "dirty" water, the clean rinse water becomes the "dirty" water, and I refill the clean rinse container with fresh filtered water. If I have a break with more time, I take both containers to the bathroom, clean them out and refill both sides with fresh water. So, yes, I do have one container of dark water, but all of my sponges, brushes, and make-up pallets are clean and not messy looking. To me this makes for a clean and professional setup.

Good heavens, my brushes are wiped after each child and nothing looks messy, grungy or dirty. The brushes are always dipped in clean water to moisten the paint. And I get compliments on how clean my setup is.
Happily Painting,
Susan

Hi Beccy,

I'm very happy to find you're on this forum. I love your videos, and your cute accent. Wink Just teasing - I almost had one too after living in Sydney for five years.

Hey Tash, there's LOTS of FP talent in OZ from what I've seen!

Kat I love you

Hi Bec! It's great to see you on here. I love your videos too. My Profile pic was inspired by you(but no where near as good as the tiger face you did). Keep the videos coming!
