Quality not what expected for price
Comments about Schmincke Empty Watercolor Tins and Pans:
The Schmincke metal tin is super sturdy and the enameled finish is really good. That part of the product is fantastic. The metal rows of pan holders are crooked and the tabs that holds the pan were smashed down to a 45 degree angle on all the rows. (I got the 48 half pan size), so I had to lift them to get the pans in at all. I have pressed the tab against the pan as firmly as possible, but they still slide around a bit. The tin works and I will use it, but for the premium price, I expected the pan rows to be even and the pans to be firmly held by the tabs like some of my cheaper tins manage to do.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

" Reconfiguring the Watercolor Pans"
from Cape Coral, Florida
I am utilizing the pans by glueing magnets to the bottom of the pan and then they willstay put on a "butcher tray"( which by the way is metal). Also putting tape on the tray and using a thin magic marker write the exact color next to the pans.Fill the pans with paint and I should be all set to go.( Wish me luck...........)
Not the right size!
Apparently not all full pans are the same size! There really should be some standardization. Or each company could sell their own- as it is these are the only ones to choose from. The difference is so small but it's enough to not fit at all. So take a look at the palette you want to add these to and make sure this will work. Also, I feel these should be super cheap- there's nothing to them, but they're not. Oh well. #sweepstakes
Gum Arabic - well priced
By Swooping Eagle
Great little container for on the go artists- This batch of gum arabic is perfect for my purposes with gouache and watercolors on heavy papers. It's got a nice even consistency with all the gummy-ness that gum arabic should have.

Best Quality and Value
This is the best quality and best designed watercolor tin on the market and although it is pricy, Blick's price cannot be beat. Less quality tins sell for a similar price. This is my second Schmincke tin and it will not be my last.

Accepts whole or half-size empty or pre-filled watercolor pans. Customize with any combination of empty pan sizes and fill with your own favorite tube or dry colors.
Not much to get wrong--works as designed
By T. Torch
from San Diego, CA
I bought four empty half-pans along with paints and, at Blick's sale prices plus free shipping, very worthwhile deal. The half-pans are pretty self-explanatory and nothing negative to report with quality. Standard size, snaps perfectly into my metal watercolour palette box. They're perfect if you're looking to create your own, customized watercolour box.
