Collecting Vintage And Antique Wooden Artist Palettes

Decorating With Old Wooden Painted Artist Palettes: Pickers Alert 

Did you know that old wooden artist palettes are very collectible and fetching considerable prices in today's collectibles market. Many collectors like to use these vintage artist palettes as wall decor arranging different shapes and sizes in interesting vignettes. I have even seen palettes propped on a small easel and showcased as "art" .

Palettes Can Be More Interesting Than Artwork

As a mixed media artist, I know that often our palettes are more interesting than the artwork we are making. There is something delightful about the spontaneity of splattered colors which have gotten layered on an old wooden palette. The palette shown in this blog was featured at The English Building Market in New Haven with a price tag of $75.00. So the next time you come across an old palette, you just may want to scoop it up or write me!
