Comments about Richeson Grey Matters Paper Palette:
Okay. This product was new to me via Blick (Richeson Grey Matters Paper Palette). I thought I would give it a try. I'm sold. I like everything about the product. I have no need to change to any other paper palette. Paint blends well on it and clean up is faster than with other brands.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Greatest Invention Since Sliced Bread
I really like these disposable sheets for paint mixing. I usually don't buy something that can't be cleaned and reused. This is a good exception. As someone new to painting, it takes me more time and space to mix the colors I want, so these large sheets are great for me now.
Grey Matters is so convenient
I love this palette because the grey background is almost the same color that I tone my supports. I can easily tell if the color I'm mixing is accurate. Also, cleanup is a breeze.
Love this product, mess free just throw it away the paper after you finish

Richeson Grey Matters Palette Paper
By Bliss T.
from Greenwich, CT
I am an oil and acrylic artist. Having a toned palette (middle tone grey or brown) allows me to see the colors better and achieve better mixes. The fact that these are disposable easy cleanup at a reasonable price makes this product a thumbs up for me. I selected the 12 x 16 size which fits perfectly in my Masterson Sta Wet Palette Box (with oils I remove the sponge that comes with the Masterson). I just drop the whole pad in it. The paper stays stable and allows me to always have a clean palette. This system keeps my paints longer and gives me plenty of mixing room. A wood palette can warp or split if putting the oil palette in the freezer. Paints mix well with the wax coating. For small jobs or plein air there are smaller sizes of this paper which make it quite portable.
Easy to take along and not heavy

enjoying mixing oil colors on the warm gray

Since I paint out in the breeze and wind, the paper sheet needs to be taped to the enamel lasagne pan. This summer I am working smaller,so I need to change my process from working from large piles of paint to a palette with just sufficient paint for each session. It is great to not have to clean the pallette. Just use the paint and fold in half and reuse.Widler Wenzel

I saw other artists using this grey paper pallette. I did some research on it and decided to order it. Its a simple yet effective idea as to why to use this. Gray is a neautral color so it therefor helps you judge you values and colors more accurately while mixing on them. On the back of the front cover sheet is a value finder and color wheel and some basic color theory which alone is a value in itself. Just cut it off and keep it around when you need. When you are done or the grey paper has paint all over just throw it away and tear out a new one. No more spending time on cleaning a pallette.

These disposable palettes are fantastic. I love the gray color because it helps me to see how my colors will really look. I tried going back to a wood palette and gave up after a few tries. I think this is one of the greatest products an artist can find. I buy the smaller ones to fit in my 9x12 palette box. I have used other brands of paper palettes but most were too slick and my paint slid around. These have just the right amount of slickness.
