I get asked about my palette very often. Here are the details along with cheaper, lighter options.

  1. Brass palette, heavy, expensive, one time purchase, street cred
    Google-> Craig Young, Little Brass box. Then google Roberson palette and never exit the dark web of palettes.
  2. Plastic palette, cheap, lighter, less celebrity in ownership

  3. Brush sizing: Uma loves Da Vinci Casaneo mops, also called their series 498. Size 2 in mops is close to size 10 or size 12 of rounds. Standardization of brush sizes is the next frontier for science.
  4. 📚 My blog post on why I love the mopsLINK
  5. 📹 My video review of the Da Vinci brushesLINK
  6. Sign up for my twice a year newsletter (LINK) – I routinely add an informative article about either a product/method/art habit to it. January’s newsletter (LINK) spoke about how I judged the national show.
