Where’s My Palette Knife?

Old Palette Knife

I hadn’t realised how much I use my palette knife until it went AWOL. 

What a disaster!  I’ve only ever done 1 palette knife painting but I use it to mix my paints (I try hard not to mix with brushes, so easy to forget though).

I went out and bought a new palette knife, so clean and shiny, only to have the old faithful turn up a few days later.

So I’m now the proud owner of 2 palette knives, one of which has a sharp tip (the old one’s a bit disfigured).  Maybe I’ll attempt a few more palette knife paintings.
