Re-using plexiglass, bottle caps and tips of pipettes

One of our social media followers shared some great advice with us. Small scraps of plexiglass that have been discarded from other projects and can be used as palettes. A bottle cap becomes a water receptacle, and a cap from an old syringe protects her brush when it is not in use. No need to buy new materials!
