What can I do with leftover acrylic paint on palette?
“Putting wet paper towels under wax paper works pretty well to keep acrylic paints moist while working. I often use one Styrofoam plate as a palette, then fasten another one over the top of it with a rubber band to keep the paint workable. If I spray the paint beforehand, it will stay soft for a couple of days.”
Does acrylic paint come off easily?
While some paint can be easily washed off, acrylic paint is different. It dries fairly quickly, so if you accidentally get it somewhere you don’t want, you should act fast to remove it while it is still wet. It’s not impossible to remove when it is dry, but it will be a bit tricker.
How do you clean a paint palette?

How do you clean an acrylic painting?
The simplest way to clean up an oil or acrylic painting on canvas is to use a white cotton cloth soaked in a gentle soapy water; olive oil–based soap works wonders.

Can I use hairspray to seal acrylic paint?
Can you use hairspray to seal paint? Acrylic paint, tempera paint and other types of paint that you might use on rocks cannot be sealed with hairspray.
