Looks pretty easy, thanks!

Couple of noob questions:

1) Doesn't the water seep through the paper and dilute the paint? What I mean is, doesn't the paint get more and more diluted (and therefore the colour change if you are doing any kind of mixing of pigments) the longer you leave it in the pallette?

2) What is actually the point of a wet pallette anyway? What makes it better than the back of ye olde Magic: The moneyGathering card?

Never used a wet pallette before (obviously ;)) was wondering what all the fuss is aboot.

Cheers,
Matt

Your paint won't dry out on a wet palette which means what ever colour you mix up will last longer.

No because the paper is somewhat water resistant and the paper isn't submerged under the water.
