I have finally found a moulded plastic box, and foam lining that works brilliantly for me as a wet palette.
I've tried many things before but not found anything as simple as this.
box is impact resistant with a metal pin hinge and a firm clasp and
comes ready lined with a close cell foam. Its shallow enough to mean
you're not reaching 'over' the lip of a "tupperware" box and it has
little to no lip. When open the lid lies flat and actually means that
you could double your palette area (although obviously you can't close
it with paint and water in if you use both sides.
I'm thinking of knocking them out of my webstore.
Two palette sizes.
Small 90 x 130 x 23mm (with a usable palette size of 70 x 110mm) - estimate £7
Large 110 x 160 x 29mm (with a usable palette size of90 x 140mm) - estimate £9
sizes include 15 sheets of parchment, a zip lock bag to keep the box
airtight if you're not painting for several days, and a length of copper
wire to help keep down mold growth.
Good idea or not?
