The palette looks exactly like I wanted. It is lightweight, with 4 good sized mixing wells and even more space than the 16, 1/2 pans if the "thumb hole" is used. But as I haven't actually transferred my paint yet I have not used it so can't give 5 stars yet.
just what I needed for my travels, and it turned up on time. fantastic deep wells for mixing water colour washes. very happy
does not open easily, bit flimsy for price, but lightweight
It looks cheap and once it turned up I thought I should have bought the clover leaf one, But as the clover leaf costs £40 and this was £15.90 I suppose you get what you pay for. I read Jane Blundell's review and she likes it, that's good enough for me.
This is a great palette for plein air work. It is very flexible, as you can use as is or fill in the thumb hole or add more pans and fill in the whole section. The mixing areas are good and it is relatively strong. I have written more, including a lot of photos of lots of different configurations of this one and the full pan version, in my blog. http://janeblundellart.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/watercolour-palettes-1-herring-palette.html
Everything came on time, well packed! Perfect!
Just what I needed. Sturdy, easy to use compact palette for taking along on trips.
The plastic is sturdy, though the clasp will need some wearing down with use.
I really like the box construction and dimensions but I still can't decide if I like the plastic. Reminds me of White Nights watercolor boxes but surely isn't sturdier than the Cotman sketcher's pocket box. The time will tell.
