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.

Saving my paint
from Utica NY
I have ordered 3 of the Masterson Sta-Wet Premier Palettes. I love them for what they do.... help to keep my acrylic paints wet. The only issues I have is that the covers are very hard to snap on the corners. It seems they are not made to stay straight When you get them they fit but whenever I try to put the covers on they are very tight and never seem to want to close on all four corners. Also once in a while the sponges seem to get moldy.... I am careful w/the sponge b/c though they say you can wash in washer but I try to keep them as durable as possible by hand washing. I have tried vinegar, Lysol spray, and washing w/soap. I really really like the product but am disappointed that it is so hard to maintain them.
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with this palette. To retard the growth of mold, Masterson recommends adding a bit of ammonia to the water you use to wet your sponge. Another tip they offer is to apply a petroleum jelly to the groove of the lid to make it easier to open and close. If we can be of further assistance to you in working with this palette, we hope you'll feel welcome to reach out to our Product Information Team.

I have been using these for years-great

Its nice to be able to stop painting and still be able to save my paint.

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.
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!

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.
