I don’t just wash or wipe clean my palettes. I use my left-over watercolor mixes by painting rice paper gift wrappers. The one shown here have leaves from plants growing in my garden—-Podocarpus (Buddhist pine), bamboo, common fern, Borassus (palmira), Ficus pumila (creeping fig), Citrofortunella microcarpa (calamansi), Bucida molinetil (bushida), and Pinus mugo (creeping pine). Then, for tying up the gift box, I use dark abaca twine.
Keep painting–they make ever-ready, lovely gifts for all occasions!
