Welcome to dickblick
The Mijello Artelier Peel-off Palette features a two-piece, sealable design that can keep oil and acrylic paints fresh for weeks. But if and when your paint does dry on the palette, the high-impact, non-porous plastic construction allows you to simply peel it away.
Designed by artists for artists, it features 28 divided wells surrounding a larger central well. The lid provides a tight seal — great for transport — and also functions as a large mixing area.

Very Functional for Plein Air Painting
By Mary the Artist
from North Carolina
Comments about Mijello Artelier Peel-off Palette:
I use this for Plein Air oil painting and it is very suitable for this purpose. I prepare my paints prior to my trips, cover them up and I am ready to start painting, no fuss, no mess! When finished I cover the pallette and take it back to my home studio to be cleaned and set up for the next trip. The only negative I have found is that the side clips don't always seat properly; however the paints don't leak so I'm not discouraged from using the pallette.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good for Watercolor Too!
from Bangor, Maine
This palette is advertised for oil and acrylic, but it works great with watercolors, too. It is easy to clean. It is intermediate size between the smaller Mijello airtight watercolor palette and the larger airtight-lid palettes that some professionals use. It's a good size for traveling, especially if you use medium size brushes instead of just small brushes. The think I like best about this palette compared to larger airtight palettes is that it is so easy to open and close, due to the four lever-like clasps. Take a close look at the photograph of the lid. It has 21 cells for paints, one large mixing area and three smaller mixing areas.

This product is great ecause I don't have to clean it out every time I use it and when finished with a particular palette I CAN JUST PEEL OFF ANY UNWANTED COLORS and add new ones.
Excellent product for watercolor paints too!
By Lynn J.
from Hamburg, NY
This small water-tight palette is advertised for acrylic and oil paints, but I find it to be an excellent choice for watercolor as well. I teach classes and so student travel with their painting supplies. With the water-tight seal on this palette there is no worry about paint staining clothing or your car while transporting painting gear to and from class Disaster averted! With the shipping and handling, it's a bit more costly than I would have liked, but it performs very well.
Hard to clean
I paint with oils. The Mijello keeps them usable for a week or two even without refrigeration. I like the size and the way the box closes, but contrary to the product description, I think it's very difficult to clean. Trying to get dried paint out of those tiny cups takes up half my painting time. What I'd like is a flat, sealable palatte box about 10 x 12 with disposable palatte paper tablets. 12 x 16 is too big to carry around easily to class or en plein air and 7 x 8 is too small.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works just like described.
from Fort Luderdale
It keeps my acrylics usable for days and clean up if/once paint dries is super easy.
Seriously Phenomenal Excellent
from Los Angeles, CA
I paint with oils, also i teach and run an art project for homeless and formerly homeless people and most everyone paints in oils... it's easy for a palette full of oil paint to get forgotten and harden. i've thrown away many palettes both wood and plastic, also, as a result of not staying on top of this.I bought one (1) of these Mijello's and have had it for years. not only does it keep the paint wet for amazing lengths of time,but it was lost in a corner of the studio for a year, and i could still scrape and clean the oil paint from off it... it's very well made and seems to seal airtight. if one kept a small tiny refrigerator set aside just for non-food stuffs you could keep paints on this palette closed for probably six months without the paint drying. A reviewer mentioned having trouble getting dried acrylic off.i don't paint with acrylics so i do not know, but what i know is that with any other palette i have used there comes a point where you have to throw the palette away if you let the paints dry on it. This one i can not only clean paint out of the inside far longer after it has dried, but even off the top of it, meaning with full exposure to the air for drying... impressed. altruistically these palettes work great for the artists i serve in my art project. furthermore, my selfish agenda in posting such a strong positive review is so that they keep making these things... and they stay available.
The product was as advertised. Keeps my acrylics fresh for days. It arrived one day sooner than scheduled. All around great. Thanks
from Wauwatosa WI
This product is designed to keep unused paint preserved so that it is not waisted. The product does just that. Also if you forget to put the lid on the dried paint peels right off so clean up is super easy. Love it!

This is my third Peel-Off Palette, I use one for watercolor, one for acrylics and one for water soluble oils. I love the air tight seal, it keeps paint fresher longer. There is plenty of space (I use the lid, too) for mixing colors. After several years, there is some staining on my oldest palette, but if I use artists brush soap I can get it back to mostly white.
