I am sure that everyone has their own methods, and for the really experienced you probably don't need it either, but I thought i would share it with everyone anyways as I never feel like I can contribute anything, but I just love using this for mixing my paints in" my pallette"!! It has 16 wells
and I don't have to clean out my wells to make room for a new color, for an on-line class, which sometimes may take up more wells than my regular palette can hold.
Each "egg" well is the perfect size so you can mix without it spilling over the edges into the next color well and also my regular palette doesn't hold enough mix in a single well for a double mix for when you are going to do a wash that includes a belly plate. (I always seem to run out of the mix when I have to do a torso or full belly plate).
Its made out of dishwasher safe porcelain, I got mine at target:
