Make a Brush and Pallet Knife Wiper/Paper Saver

Tired of being surrounded by paint encrusted crushed up paper towels and rags? Do something about it! Make your very own Brush and Pallet Knife Wiper/Paper Saver.  Simply wrap a double layer of paper towels around a rectangular piece of mat board or foam board.  Secure the paper towel with two or three “band-aids” of masking tape.  Blot and wipe your brushes and pallet knives on this surface.  When it gets covered with paint, simply add another layer of paper towel on top of the old one and re-tape it.  It ends up becoming a nice cushioned surface for wiping your painting tools, and cuts way back on your use of paper towels and rags.  It also creates a neater work area.
