Welcome to dickblick
Save paint, time, and money with the Masterson Sta-Wet Palette Seal, an airtight container for storing a wet palette. It preserves the freshness of your paints for many days, saving you from having to clean your palette after every painting session.
For oils, place your favorite type of palette (wood, glass, plastic, or paper) into the Palette Seal tray and snap on the lid.
For acrylics, use the Palette Seal with Sta-Wet palette paper sheets and a sponge insert (both sold separately). Moisten the sponge and lay it inside the tray, then place the palette paper on top. When the lid is open, your acrylics will have an extended open time. When the lid is snapped shut, the Palette Seal will maintain a moist atmosphere that preserves acrylic paint amazingly well. (For best results, use only Sta-Wet brand palette paper, which is permeable, cleanable, and reusable.)
Made in the USA of tough yet lightweight plastic, the Masterson Sta-Wet Palette Seal measures 1¾"H × 16"W × 12"D (4.5 cm × 40 cm × 30 cm).

Keeps my oils fresh. Great for Plein Air
from Ellijay, GA
Comments about Masterson Sta-Wet Palette Seal:
Transporting oil paints for a Plein Air event is so easy now. I'm set up and ready to paint just by opening the lid.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like that it has a lid that seals
from New Port Richey, Fl
I use to take to class. I just bought the wrong paper to go inside. I like it because I can leave the paints and seal it up for another day.
I'm glad to have this.

Because I'm a part time painter and have limited time to paint, the palette seal helps keep my color mixtures from drying out between painting sessions. it saves time (I don't have to re-mix the colors I need all the time), & money from wasted, dried out unused paint. Putting petroleum jelly in the grooves of the lid with a small bristle round brush helps create a real good seal after you burp the air out. I also have two in case I have more than one painting going on.
A very important tool if you paint daily.
from New York
Using this Palette everyday helps me save the oil paint that I haven't used up. Paint stays fresh until the next day as long as I keep the lid closed. I recommend this to product to everyday painters like me. I first got the idea from my classmates at Art Students League.

Masterson Sta-Wet Palette Seal box
The first one of these Stay-Wet Palette boxes lasted 35 years. I just purchased a new one. It has a tight seal and does keep my paint from drying out. Love it.
from Colorado Springs ,Colorado
I did a review on this same palette, I own 2 now. one for oil, one for acrylic, I paint back and forth, while waiting for oil to dry. You do need to follow the suggestion of putting a petroleum based product along the lid seal. it does help with taking off and putting on the lid. If you're going to be away from painting a long time, be careful of very wet sponges with the acrylic. I noticed a bit a mold. a drop of bleach on a cotton swab remedies this. ( if not a lot of mold is there)
The one and only
Put glass in for portable palette
Love this palette keeper.
I'm a professional artist, I work in a lot of mediums.This palette has been around a LONG time. I had purchased one around or 30 years ago. I bought it for acrylics. I hated it. But that was my own fault, for not having a lot of information, about it or my medium. The Lid was much more stiff then, and I ended up tossing it. But the 2nd one, I absolutely LOVE. The lid is so much more flexible, and the base, isn't as rigid as my first one, but by no means floppy. I would recommend if you're using acrylics, buy the sponge inserts, they work. you could use something else, but it is not as effective. I have 2 complaints about it, the lid is extremely tight, a good seal, and I wouldn't want them to change this, I would like to get over the tennis elbow, it makes it difficult to pry it off, they recommend to go around the lid groove with petroleum, to make it easier, it does help. so just don't be surprised, or injured when wrangling this. When you're sealing the lid to the base, put ON A SECURE Surface!!!! ( I use a smaller table, and you need to lock in one corner first, as recommended on the instructions, and thanks to them for including this with the palettes, they didn't on my first) you will have to do a race track with your thumb around the edges. If you have arthritis in your hands, it might be a bit difficult. You can not just press the corners and think it's sealed; go around it a couple times for a secure seal. My second complaint is not so much the box itself, but how to keep the palette paper from curling at the corners. Nothing I can think of at the moment, will remedy this, there is no room for a clip to anchor it to a moist sponge for acrylics, but I guess you could use a small round sewing weight in the corner, but it will get messy. The paint stays moist, I'd think for a LOT longer than you'd think with acrylic, and I'm pretty sure, you'd not have any loss if you couldn't get back to your painting ( oil) if it was over a week, I'd be really surprised, if it was longer than a couple months though. The support pegs that are in the lid, do not interfere with the paint, (unless you have a mountain of it in the wrong place. so pay attention) I'd not only recommend this, but I plan on purchasing two more, one for acrylic ( and I'll get the sponges that fit) and another for my husband, who works in gouache, and paints so slow, I think he'd be pleased that he could keep a palette for so long a time)
