Trisha Hardwick has written a very helpful review on our website of the New Wave Grey Pad, a rectangular disposable paper palette.
“These tear off palette pads are coated, but unlike some other tear off pads for oil paint, these do not absorb any of the oil from the paint, nor allow it to seep through, and again unlike some others, the coating has a satin finish, not glossy, so it’s easier to pick up or mix paint. The pale grey tint to the paper is easy on the eye and shows up the paint colours well. It would be nice to have two sizes available. In my case, I use small heaps of paint and generally only use perhaps 2/3 of these sheets for each painting. This larger size is at least versatile. I’d been disappointed to find the surface of tear off palettes greatly changed in recent years, so was very pleased to see Jacksons stock this one.”
