Welcome to dickblick
Porcelain is a great surface for mixing paint! These nesting porcelain bowls are so easy to clean, and they stack neatly when you need to store them.
Porcelain is weighty, so these mixing bowls won't slide around while in use. Thanks to their sturdy construction, they will last you for many years.
The small bowl measures 75 mm (just under 3") in diameter, and each bowl is 13 mm (about ½") tall. The large bowl measures 100 mm (just under 4") in diameter, and is about 15 mm tall. Each set comes with one cover lid.

Just what I wanted.
from Madison, WI
Comments about Nesting Porcelain Bowls:
I was looking for a way to mix and save some of watercolor washes that I use often, and which I didn't want to be contaminated by other colors the way they can be on a flat palette. These quality glazed porcelain dishes work perfectly, and stack nicely for a organized work table. They are large enough to contain a generous wash, yet the rounded bottom allows the remaining color to collect in the bottom.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Happy Little Accidents
from NW Louisiana
I have trouble with big watercolor palettes cause my colors inevitably run together and become muddy mud. I got the larger stacking palettes and it's really changed up the way my colors look - there is a tangible difference in quality.On a customer service note, when this order arrived initially, one of the palettes was cracked. I called Blick immediately and talked to a lovely guy called Matt. He put me on hold for a second and then told me he would get a new set shipped out to me. Two days later I received my replacement palette with extra packaging. Super fast and friendly response.
Great cups for washes
from Georgetown, TX
I love these. Especially the larger ones for mixing washes.
These make doing color charts so much easier. I can keep the colors separate rather than risk accidental color mixing on the palette. And clean up is easy too!

Love the concept, not so much the execution!
from New York, NY
Bought these in both sizes as I like the way porcelain holds watercolor, not to mention the added benefit of not staining. Love the nesting concept and the fact that the hollowed out bases allow each to be used as a "cover" as well. I bought in both sizes, but am preferring the smaller size. The "fit" isn't great when they are stacked so they tend to wobble and sway a bit... much more pronounced with the larger size. I wish there was some way of "locking" the stack. Nevertheless they are a convenient and space effective alternative to a full porcelain palette.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great for mixed media
from Mississauga, Ontario Canada
I use these porcelain nesting bowls for ink, gesso, paint, and any mediums especially if a need small portions at one time. This makes their use practical in that I don't have to use large palettes or disposable paper. They clean up quickly. They have a nice weight and store easily.I enjoy using this product and I would recommend them.

These are my go to palette for watercolors. I like that I can keep my colors completely separate from one another and mix as much as I need. The rims are slightly rough-perhaps there isn't enough glaze there-and cleaning can be tricky because they can stain a bit in that area. Also, my brushes are expensive and I"m concerned that roughness is breaking the hairs. I'm mindful of how I use the edges.
from Louisville, KY
Wonderful, non-staining, and keeps watercolors wet.

Top rim unglazed
from Nashville, TN
I got these to use for decorating miniature porcelain after taking a class and using similar ones. These disappointed me because the top rim of each bowl is not glazed, making it hard to clean. It's strange that they're completely glazed on the bottom but not on the top. They also don't fit together very well so I end up with a crooked, wobbly stack. The concept is wonderful, but these were not made well.
