Generally speaking, I’ve had quite an aversion to plastic palettes, but this one I’ve been using for the past few months has been excellent. There is quite a division in the watercolor world between plastic, metal and ceramic pallets… ultimately, if you can store and mix your pigment it doesn’t matter what you use. Of course, a one-of-a-kind, handmade brass enameled palette is the Rolex of palettes, but for those on a budget or not wanting to make a huge investment, this is the way to go!
I’ve recently come across this well designed, low cost palette. It is very similar to the Holbein 1000 (no longer in production). Featuring 23 deep pigment wells and 6 mixing areas with tall wall separations. The benefit? You can squeeze out plenty of pigment and keep large washes seperated, they won’t spill into each other easily.
However, I couldn’t find this exact model anywhere online. I’ve been able to acquire a handful of these to make available to you.

The palette has been prepared for you. Pre-washed to remove any surface film that prevents proper washes from forming.
