A palette is a board with a hole for the thumb which holds different colors of paint for artists to use. An artist can use a single color to paint or use the board to mix different colors together to form a new color.
Palettes can be traced back to the 1600s. I have used one before, but it's been a very long time. Have you ever tried one?

I've always loved the look of mandalas. They are so beautiful and I enjoy how colors are used in them. They can also be very relaxing to color. Some people use them for meditation.
