Screw top threads not working
By Vermont plein air painter
The palette cup was what I was looking for. However, when it arrived, I couldn't unscrew one of the caps. No matter how hard I tried....Finally got the top off to reveal the cup thread was dented. Not worth trying to fix as the quality was only average. The cup that I need it to replace - I could not find anywhere, and quality was top shelf. I'll keep looking.....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Worst Palette Cups Ever
from Asheville NC
I can't believe all the good reviews on these palette cups. I can only assume that DickBlick switched brands at some point in the last two years. By the way, the cups in the photo ARE NOT the same as what you actually get. These cups leak like crazy. I had to stop clipping them onto the palette because the medium would just leak out the bottoms onto the palette. I thought I'd just gotten a bad set of cups and bought another set later, because the photo changed and I assumed it was a different brand. Nevertheless, I got the same exact palette cups and same result. They leak. The rubber stoppers don't stay in place and constantly fall out of the tops into the medium, and it's a messy pain to remove them when that happens. Definitely not worth the money. I'll go back to jars instead.

a step down
your prior palette cups had brass threaded caps-these are a step down in quality, but usable
Happy with product
from Leesburg, VA
Although smaller than I had envisioned them, I'm happy with the double palette cups. They clean very easily and the caps seal tight! Very convenient, hope to use for years to come.

These covered cups work well for keeping medium close at hand. Clip it on your palette and the medium is less than an arms stretch away. They clean up easily too.I did have an odd case of a cup leaking turp--not even sure how it was possible--but Blick took care of it!

The best palette cups ever
from Edina, MN
At last--a palette cup with a tight rubber seal on the lid. This palette cup is little enough to be stored in my field box. I can fill it with turpentine or medium, seal it down and use it until it's gone. Unlike open cups, there is no waste, no having to dispose of medium and clean the cups after each use. It's also easy to set the cover on top of the cup when in use to reduce fumes from the medium. I remove the top to dip my brush, then replace the lid. I store my cups in my field box inside a platic bag as a precaution against spills. However these cups have never leaked for me. They free space in my field box by allowing me to leave the bottle of medium at home and to just take the amount I need with me.

I knew I would like these lidded stainless steel cups. They hold just the right amount, and are easy to clean out with a paper towel. Fumes and spills are more easily avoided than with using dishes, cans etc. Got some for my son as a gift also.
