Comments about Schmincke Empty Watercolor Tins and Pans:
I have found that I am able to get 26 half pans in my 24 half pan box! I currently use one "24" half pan box for warm colors and another for cool colors.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent Pan Palette
from Viera, FL
The Schmincke pan palette, which I purchased with empty full pans and half pans, is well-made and a good value. Virtually every other metal pan palette has to be ordered from the UK, and kudos to Dick Blick for having them available. Fill the pans with your choice of paints. The pans fit nicely in the slots and there are generous mixing areas when the palette folds out. Overall, just what I was looking for to take to art lessons and workshops. Highly recommended.

Great tin but expensive-!!
from Aurora, CO
The tin is great but it was really expensive, I just chose it because I could fit two extra pans in it compared to another brand and I didn't know any other alternatives- it is a good tin and if you really want it get it use a promo code to get it cheap-! All in all it's a great tin!

Love my new Palette set - albeit a bit to heavy for travel.
from Silver Spring, MD
Love the products I ordered, just wish Blick offered for free faster service on shipping especially if you're a Blick member.
Pricey but worth it.
I bought the 24/48 tin and I am really enjoying it so far. you do have to buy the pans separately but in a way that was nice since I did a weird mix of full and half pans. the pans snap in and stay put while traveling.The only problem I have with the tin is that it flexes a bit when it is open which isn't much of a problem because I don't move it around when it's open that often and while closed the tin is solid.
Just what I wanted
from Saratoga Springs, NY
compact with plenty of fold out room for mixing colors. half pans snap in easily and stay put.
I purchased the 48 half pan palette and after using it one day it has already started to rust. It also has some scratches on the mixing surface which let the paint permanently stain into them and the pans slide around inside even after tightening the holding tabs . It's made from very thin metal and it's way overpriced for the quality. Very disappointed
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that this tin hasn't held up well for you. These case are made of sheet steel and have a baked-on enamel finish. If the surface of the box is not damaged, it is rust-resistant, but it sounds like there was some damage to the finish on the one you received. One of our Customer Care Representatives will be following up via email so we can help you with this.
Highly recommend but use a coupon code.
from Naples, FL
I bought this metal palette to replace my plastic Winsor & Newton travel palette. (Watercolor tends to bead and stain plastic and the pans were forever falling out and sticking to the lid of my W&N palette, not a fan.)I put off purchasing the Schmincke palette because it's quite pricey compared to other palettes in its category. But after researching cheaper alternatives I decided to bite the bullet and used a Dick coupon code. I have no regrets, LOVE this palette! Pans stay put, no staining, compact, and provides ample mixing area.Whilst well made, I'm docking a star because of the excessive price.

Make your own paint tin with your favorite paints
from Yucaipa, CA
Made my own mini paint tin for backpacking in a mint tin.
A GOOD WATERCOLOR TINS FOR BEGINNER
THE SCHMINCKE TIN IS A GOOD FOR BEGINNER TRAVELING OR IN THE STUDIO AND IT FIT IN YOUR BACKPACK BUT IT STILL A GOOD TIN BUT THE ONLY THING THAT IS A NOT GOOD IS THAT THIS NOT COME WITH EMPTY PANS YOU WILL HAVE TO BUY THEM SEPARATE...
