Massive, But I love it!
By Angel Kincaid
Comments about Magic Palette Artist's Color Selector and Mixing Guide:
OK.. First off.As a warning to any one else that is interested in this thing. IT IS MASSIVE. I read the dimensions but, I think i underestimated just how huge it was going to be. Thankfully i had the wall space all prepared and it fits perfect on the wall of my lil studio nook. That being said.. I have discovered that it does exactly what the creator promises.. takes the guess work out of mixing colors. if you follow then instructions you will be able to match the color you want perfectly and in quantities that you need if you are doing a large painting. If you have ever had any issues with mixing.. issues with greying down as you mix.. this thing is the perfect tool.While i also recommend that you purchase the smaller one to take with you if you do a lot of location painting.. again.. cus its MASSIVE... i can safely say that you will happily come to depend on this wonderful tool for your art.thanksangel.

I am teaching a beginning classes to adult ladies and middle school children. I have been mixing colors for so long that it became instinct for me and was difficult for me to help them understand which colors to mix to get the desired color. This chart hangs on the wall of my studio and I ordered the smaller version for each student so they can have this wonderful reference at all times. Thank you for making this easy!!!

I really appreciated the art color board. With it I'm able to find exactly the color I need an mix the right paints. It's very convenient and I had no idea that such a thing existed prior to shopping this website.

Been teaching art for a long time and have used many color charts. However, with my adult students I have suggested this one, they all find it very useful.
Makes mixing easy
from Naples, Florida
I love the size and selection of colors you can mix. I find if I ever want that exact color I just take a look and there it is. The instructions for using are simple and easy to follow. The fact that it is laminated makes it durable. The only slightly negative comment I can make is it takes up a lot of room. I solved the problem by mounting it on a larger piece of poster board, punched a hole in the board and hung it on the wall.

I love the spontaneity of water color painting, but this Mixing Guide takes the guess work out of selecting the color that I want.
