Just what I wanted
from Washington State
Comments about Large Plastic Folding Palette:
Using this item for my watercolors. Small case means it is easy to take on road trips plus less space at home when painting.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lies Flat, Big Win
from Orion Spur Milky Way Galaxy
Happy to find a plastic folding that lies flat, unlike the identical version Blick makes.
from mid atlantic
I'm a color junkie, what can I say, and this palette lets me carry all my favorite core pigments for months of painting- my students end up emulating it because they see how compact yet fully useful it is. I sometimes have entire groups of students with the same palette setup (and map with painted swatches): so easy to teach when everyone starts with the same colors in the same places! Also, it does not take up huge amounts of table space (also good for plein aire).This palette was unavailable for awhile; glad to see it back. I have a main palette, and two extras that have duochrome, granulating mineral pigments, convenience mixtures and secondary colors. I almost never use the extras.The only thing this palette cannot do is very large quantities of washes and very large brushes.

I have no complaints. There's plenty of space and sections to mix paints and it's easy to store so that I can re-use colors again. I haven't tried actually traveling with it, and I don' t think i would recommend doing so while there's liquid that can spill out, because I don't think it's equipped for that (but great if everything inside has already dried!). Basically, it's everything I was looking for in a watercolor mixing palette. I'm a happy customer
Just what I needed!
from Valley Center, CA
I only recently started painting/drawing. So when I tried to find supplies (in stores), I was shocked by how expensive things were. Took to researching the Internet and found DickBlick. Was THRILLED with the prices. Not knowing about quality, I decided to take a chance. Figured I could always return stuff if it wasn't what I expected. Happily, they delivered. The folding pallette is exactly what it was described to be; GREAT value all the way around. Only "wish" is that the shipping prices weren't so high. You have to spend $99 to get free shipping so unless you're willing to lay out the bucks, you have to pay what seems to me high costs. Almost cancels out the savings but since my options are limited, I figure it's the best way to go. I highly recommend DickBlick. They have pretty much anything you might need for your art.

Pallete leaks and must be absolutely dry when you close it
from San Francisco, CA
I used the palette for watercolor, and everything must be absolutely and totally dry when you close the palette and travel. Otherwise, it leaks all over everything, including the other paints in the palette and whatever the bag is that you are using the carry it in. This is what happened to me. So it is essentially unusable for travel. The only use is to be able to cover the paints, but not to travel with it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: While this palette folds up nicely for travel, it is not noted to be waterproof. Wet paints and mixtures will need to be stored in a waterproof container. Our Product Experts would be happy to see if we can help you select another product that might better meet your needs.

Great plein air choice
By Travelling Granny
This palette will be great for use outdoors or for travelling. The individual "slots" for the paints are somewhat smaller than I was hoping, but there are good areas for mixing, and a thumb hole for use at my plein air easel. It seems sturdy, and I'm sure it will be just great! Also, it arrived in the mail in record time! Thanks!
from Northern Colorado
Travels nice. Well built for plastic (i would like to see the same design in metal). Enough sections to keep colors separate and for mixing.

Best portable palette out there
from new york city
I teach Beginner Watercolor, and this is the palette i supply for my students. it's much sturdier than other plastic folding palettes i've used, and has plenty of wells for color and room for mixing. easily cleaned. i own six palettes of my own, both large studio palettes and small travel ones...have to say that if i HAD to pick only one palette to use, this would be it. one small negative: these palettes are usually white plastic, but lately i've gotten some pale-cream-colored off-white ones. but i still plan to use them. overall, an excellent product.Oct. 2014
