How I work with acrylics and the supplies and equipment I use today is the result of studying the systems used by many other acrylic artists and, of course, by trial and error to learn what suits my personal preferences. I am pleased to be able to share my approach with you, as others have done with me.

"Thank you for sharing you information, I really like the idea of the clear cover for the sta wet palette as I often get mold -yuck! I have tried a little peroxide on the sponge mixed with water but I hate using bleach of any kind."

"Took me a minute to figure out what you meant by edges with the photo of the window squeegee and square, but when it dawned on me I thought 'Genius'!! I almost threw one out yesterday. Another wonderful tool in my arsenal."
