Acrylic mixing cups

Typically I use a flat metallic pan with a piece of greaseless baking paper over damp paper towel as a palette. This works great for mixing small amounts of acrylics but doesn't allow enough space or provide containment for larger quantities.   For large mixes I use styrofom egg cartons.  These are pure white, washable and do not absorb water based paint like the paper ones.  Just  spray the paint with a water mist then cover with foil to keep several days.  I usually cut the cartons into sets of 6 cups each to make a size that is more convenient to work with.
