I want to make a painter’s palette for a friend who usually uses acrylics and sometimes oils. Additionally, I am going to v carve some words around the edges. She paints works professionally so I would like to pick something that will last a long time.
Are there any painter’s out there? What wood would you recommend I use to make the palette? (My plan is to layout the rounded paint slots in Easel or Fusion and carve them out.)
I have made one out of Oak but it was a display for Kaleidoscopes. I found Hard White Maple, Birch or Oak were most commonly used I would use Vcarve for the dish option personally but I know it cost a lot for that program. They did have the pallette shape in the clip art for vcarve but a simple SVG search on google can round up options all day I bet.
