Worn out brush is for leveling and mixing colors on the palette. Dropper is to add water in sufficient quantity on the palette.
You can also use dishes or containers but the palette of this type is better. Please use at least two containers of water. One is for cleaning brushes and one to mix the paint. Do not use only one container of water, because it will be faster cloudy and thickens from washing brushes and damaging the painting when the turbid water reuse to be mixed with the paint. Opaque white is to be mixed with paint to create a blurring effect or used directly for the white point or highlight. Another alternative may be to use poster paint white.
