Welcome to dickblick
Porcelain palettes are a great alternative for mixing paint.
They're weighty so they won't move around while in use, and will last for years due to their sturdy construction. Porcelain palettes are also easy to clean and store.
Choose from a variety of shapes and sizes.
Note — The following Round Palettes sizes come with a loose fitting plastic cover: 5 Wells, 7 Wells, 11 Wells, and 12 Wells.

I have looked for a porcelain pallett and I am glad that I finally found one!
wonderful mixing pallette
By artist girl

use the for mixing watercolors. love the flexibility
Wonderful little palette
I bought the flower petal shape palette. I rarely use watercolors, so in recent years I only bought the white plastic type of palette. But when I went to pull out another palette from my stash, the plastic was actually crumbling! So no more plastic for me! This palette is the smallest one they offer, I think, but it's perfect for someone like me who doesn't paint a lot and doesn't get complicated when I do. This will pay for itself, even with my limited painting efforts.
Absolutely love the large porcelain pallette. I

Excellent but small
from New Orleans
Richeson seems to be the only outfit making porcelain (a.k.a. ceramic, glazed, pottery-ware, earthenware, enameled, call-it-whatever) palettes in this multi-basin design. There are about four or five that are seven inches in diameter. The one which I have that has five wells (a circular central basin, surrounded by four quarter-crescent basins) also has little indentations (four equally spaced on the outer circumference; and one each to each of the interior dividers) to keep your brush from rolling to the side when the brush-handle gently rolls into the indentation. The one which I have that has seven wells (a circular central basin, surrounded by six hexi-crescent basins) does not have the indentations so your brush will continue to roll, right off on to the table, from the seven-well palette, if that matters to you. They're heavy and solid and pretty much "true" white and the surface of the enamel (or glaze, or porcelain, or call-it-whatever) is the perfect roughened-but-smooth for dragging out a watercolor mixture across it such that you can see (better than on plastic such as melmac, on wax paper, or on any other palette surface that I've ever used) the concentration and darkness of your mixture of paint-to-water. I recommend porcelain palettes for that reason alone! I wanted the typical flower-wells patter, but I couldn't find that one in a seven-inch diameter. Beware, you might not notice, but if you read the listings carefully, you'll see that the flower-shaped palette which Blick presently offers is smaller in total circumference by a significant amount than any of the other round multi-well ceramic palettes. But both of the ones that I have are excellent, and Blick's price is right around HALF of what I found these at in a brick-and-mortar so I can't complain!
Check out those dimensions!

The 3-well palette is heavy and solid, just what I was looking for to avoid spilling and tipping. It is SO GIGANTIC! Quite a bit larger than I was expecting, having not seen it to scale and also I didn't measure out the dimensions. Alternatively, the 7 well flower palette is smaller than I'd imagined it would be (again I did not measure ahead of time).So the moral of the story is to scope out your dimensions if size matters to you.The flower palette is perfect, obvi, for watercolors and that massive 3 well mixing bowl will be great for painting large swaths of dye onto fabric. Or even for watercolor washes! YEAH!

Bought as a gift for my son. He loves it. He likes the way it is so easy to clean. He likes the weight, it stays put.
