The Daley Rowney Staywet Palette has been designed to keep acrylic colours wet and workable for a long period of time. It consists of a lidded tray into which a membrane system is placed and moistened. Acrylics can then be used on the top layer as a normal palette. Closing the lid ensures the system remains moist for days, and water may be added to extend the storage period further.
This economical palette is 13" x 9.5" x 1" (33cm x 24cm x 2.5cm). It is a rectangular shape and has a transparent removable lid. The palette contains 3 sheets of absorbent reservoir paper and 12 sheets of membrane paper.
The refill pack for the Rowney acrylic palette contains 3 sheets of absorbent reservoir paper and 12 sheets of membrane paper. The size of palette refill is 202mm x 254mm
The Stay-wet palette is a must have for acrylic painters. It does keep the paint moist for a very long time. The piece I am working on currently has been on the easle for 10 days and my paint is still fine. But, this review is about the refills. They are what they are. My only critisism is that the membrane tends to curl up tightly when you fist put it in which can be a bit fidly to straighten out. But once that's done it will last as long as you need it to as long as you remember to keep the lower sheet moist. Carol Doran (Bletchley, United Kingdom) on 22 Aug 2016
Used for the first time 2 weeks ago and acrylic paints still useable. Good size for my requirements. A bit on the flimsy side and over priced, in my opinion, however, in the absence of anything else to keep paints at their best, fit for purpose.

Very good! I bought a big one and a smaller one. The design has changed a bit but just as good as the original. Fay Lewis (Bridport, United Kingdom) on 14 Feb 2018
