Comments about Blick Folding Palette Box:
This items works okay, but if it was twice as large it could be a real jewel!The spaces for placing the different pigments are too small. There is no good reason for this that I can see. I once worked as a product manager of plastic injection molded products and I have knowledge of what I speak. This could have been designed better to be used by a watercolor artist. Simply filling the interior spaces with small slots does not work for the best usage. Larger spaces, say twice the size would be fine, even if this meant less of them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pros: Very compact, nice little thumb hold which you can custom fit by molding the plastic to the shape of your thumb.Cons: Stains with color after some use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Needs work. Doesn't lie flat when open. Blick sells some plastic folding palettes of identical design that do, like the Art Alternatives plastic palette.
A Great Supplier & shipment arrived earlier than expected
By Watercolor artist
from West Des Moines IA
I was commissioned for a dual watercolor portrait to be completed in less than 2 weeks. I discovered I was short on pigments for skin tones, and local stores charge twice Blick's prices. I crossed my fingers and ordered, thinking I'd have to paint quickly once the shipment came. It arrived early & I finished the portraits in time!
Nice Plastic Palette
I use this product for my student grade watercolors. I own both the large one and the small one. While some of the paints tend to stain the plastic, I do not mind this. Each pain compartment holds a reasonable amount of paint to work from. Plus the price is really reasonable.

easy to use
Perfect for my needs
from Whitwell, TN
I have lots of paint tubes, and although my method may not be the norm, I keep the same variety of colors in each palette, so these were perfect for my needs.

Comfortable palette that fits my pochade box
I bought this palette because it was a good size for plein air work and fits my small pochade box. Since I'm using a limited color set, this pallet provides enough wells as well as segregated mixing areas. The only problem is that the plastic beads water and color initially, so it's not a great mixing surface. I'm hoping this changes as I use it, or I might rough up the surface with a mild abrasive like silver polish.In short, a nice size and good price.
