Welcome to dickblick
The Masterson Sta-Wet Premier Palette saves you paint, money, and time by preserving the freshness of acrylics and other waterbased paints, both while you are painting and between painting sessions. Paints will stay moist on the open palette for hours. Once the lid is closed, the paints will stay in workable condition for days, even weeks.
The Premier Palette features a patented sponge insert and special permeable palette paper. Together they provide acrylic paints with a constant source of moisture. Simply moisten the sponge and lay it inside the tray, then place the palette paper on top. When the lid is open, your paints will have an extended open time. When the lid is snapped shut, the Premier Palette will maintain a moist atmosphere that preserves acrylic paints 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 Premier Palette measures 1¾"H × 16"W × 12"D (4.5 cm × 40 cm × 30 cm).
The Premier Palette comes with five Sta-Wet palette paper sheets and one sponge insert. Replacement sheets and sponge inserts are also sold separately.

Masterson Sta-Wet Premier Palette extends the usage of your paint when instructions are followed. A spritzing of vinegar and water on the sponge between uses helps to eliminate any smell when using the palette/sponge combination for lengthy periods.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This palette is a game changer
By Red Wood
from Portland Or
I used to spend to much time mixing acrylic paints. I'm very busy and don't have time to paint for 8 hours.This palette allows me to mix flesh tones and paint and reuse them many days in a row. Color matching problems gone!! Before I would waste more paint than I used. This is well worth them money.
Wet Pallette will change your life and love of acrylic paint
from Bothell wa
This wet palette has made my panting so enjoyable not racing before the paint dries or spraying and diluting my paint. I'm going on 2 weeks and my paints are still fresh! Can't say enoughQuality cost value tops. Dick Blick prices on all products are awesome too!

Great price and speedy delivery
from Los Osos CA
I am so pleased to find that you carry this pallet paper and at such a great price. the delivery was really fast so my pallet is once again clean and ready to use.
Can't imagine being without it.
from Greenville, OH
I had tried acrylics in the past and because they dry so fast on the pallet, I didn't see me getting serious about them. That changed when I decided to try this stay wet pallet, I can keep paints useable for what seems like forever, you just have to get the initial amount of water correct during assembly (to much water and paints become runny, to little and paints and pallet dry to fast). Once up and running I use a mister bottle to keep my pallet wet while in use. TIP: during assembly, after you have your sponge wet and ready for installation spray hydrogen peroxide on both sides of JUST the sponge (I use mister bottle), this will not hurt the paint and will keep mold or mildew from forming. I use the same paper pallet over and over again no need to keep changing it.

Best sponge last a long.....time
from Miami, FL
Refill is perfect for large M J. palette. To use you just dampen sponge, wring out and place in tray. Next cut wax paperto size and place in tray. Next onto three sides fold and place dampen paper towels. Now your tray is ready to have paints put on the paper towel sides - youMix the colors in the middle. SPRAY WATER AS NEEDED TO KEEPPAINTS WET. This is a terrific product. Thumbs Up!
It works very well. I already recommended it to my friends
It keeps my paint wet even the ones that are slightly dry out due to age.
The only palette paper for acrylics
from Athens, OH
I use the Sta-Wet Palette with acrylic paints and the palette seal with oils. I had a piece of safety glass cut for the oils for a strong, smooth surface. It's easy to clean with a paint scraper, no palette paper needed.I have tried other palette papers with the acrylics but the others are really designed for oils. Acrylics dry out on them because of the coating which keeps oils from seeping through. As far as I'm concerned, Sta-Wet papers are the only ones for acrylics. I don't use the sponge. I put four layers of wet paper towels underneath instead. I used to pre-soak the paper according to the instructions but I now skip that step. I just lay the dry sheet on the wet paper towels and it's wet in just a couple of minutes. It works great. I put my paints along two sides and mix in the middle. I paint almost everyday. When I'm through painting I spray the paper where I mix and wipe it with a paper towel a couple of times. The next day I'm ready to paint. One palette paper usually lasts me over a month so it's very economical. The only problem I ever have with this method is if I don't paint for 3 or 4 days the acrylics will mold so if you're an occasional painter you'll need to open the palette to give it fresh air every couple of days or start with a new paper.If you have trouble sealing the palette just get the corners on first then the sides will seal. It can be difficult at first but with use it loosens up a little and one day you'll realize you don't have a problem with it any more.
