Great chance to create your own palette.
By Fine Artist
Comments about Schmincke Empty Watercolor Tins and Pans:
I already had the Schmincke watercolor 48 piece set but there are so many other colors that I wanted to create my own palette. The empty pan set is ideal for that goal!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just what I wanted
By Fiddling John
from Berryton, KS
I already have a Whiskey Painters palette, and it's a great palette, but I wanted a second mixing surface. This product has it, and I'm pleased with the construction quality. It may be expensive, but if I wanted a cheap hobby I wouldn't be doing watercolor. Having the right tool for the job makes the journey more enjoyable. Being portable is a key priority for my sketchbook journaling.

Great tin for traveling watercolors
from Portland, OR
Although the price is quite high for an empty water color pan - it is worth it. I have several cheap metal pallets I have bought and the Schmincke is much more solid and a joy to use.

good quality, fits in metal palettes nicely
from Castle Rock, WA
I have purchased these empty pans again and again for my watercolor palettes. They are good quality and fit in metal tins perfectly.
I would buy this empty watercolor tin again...good quality!
I have my watercolor pallet filled already!
seem to be a non-standard size
from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
I bought the half pans to fit an empty box. The box openings will fit Cottman, Windsor Newton, and Sennelier half pans, but these are a tiny bit too large on the bottom and as such cannot be used as intended
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Quality not what expected for price
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.
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on this tin. The tabs are flexible so the tin can accommodate different manufacturers' various pan sizes, but it sounds like the tin you received may have been damaged. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up with you to see how we can help.
