I normally use a piece of transparent glass or plastic. Sometimes I also use small old broken china plates or things I find in the lab like used eppendorf test-tubes and things like that.

I cut apart the plastic tray that my ancient Rowney Georgian water colors came in. So now I have a small butcher tray sort of palette, a studio type with wells, plus a flower shaped one that I prepare my washes in.

Just bought an average palette with wells, apart from that I use tupperware boxes and the lid of my watercolor set.

i'm not actually that fussy so i went for a hybrid between the two. i use old chocolate tin lids, saucers, pallets with wells that clip on to my paint box that have rectangular wells some deeper then others, circular wells, a flower shaped pallet... basically what does the job.

Flat... I use my old, old (about 20 years) wooden breadboard:D
(1st side for water-based paints, 2nd - for oil & acryls)

Definitely with wells or divisions of some kind. The watercolor box lid is excellent. I use ink often along with watercolours and you obviously can't mix ink very well on flat surfaces.

I actually have a folding pallet with wells and flat areas. I use the wells to make my own personalized tray set from the tubes I buy, but I prefer to mix on the flat areas.

I should take a photo, probably...

Flat- cause I'm using thick cartoon paper. No need to bother with palette:)

I have three that I switch between depending on the type of watercolours I'm using: inks (round palette with deep wells), tablets (smaller round palette with shallower wells) or tubes Large rectangular palette with round and square wells). I also have a flat palette that a friend gave me, but it doesn't work with the way I use the colours.

I have this plastic palette with square and round wells, but I also have a porcelain tile if I want to be able to mix real quick. I use the plastic thing the most. I never EVER use the lid of my prrrrrecious watercolour-paintbox...

Flat. I don't have the patience to prepare it in wells.
