How do you hold a pallet of paint?

Insert your thumb through the hole, then curl your fingers around the edge or just rest the palette on top of them. Hold it firmly, but not in a panic grip. You don't want to get a cramp in your fingers, you just want to be sure you don't drop the palette when you put brush to paint.

Similarly, it is asked, what can I use instead of a paint palette?

Real Glass Glass can be used as a palette, because it is nice and smooth and the paint will wash off easily. However, it is the most dangerous option! If it breaks, the glass will shatter into tiny pieces and scatter everywhere, which can be difficult to clean up.
