The metal boxes are designed to hold most makes of half pans or whole pans or a combination of the two. You can also fit empty whole pans & half pans and add your own tube colour.
The approx dimensions of the lightweight boxes are:
12HP/6WP - 120mmx67mm
24HP/12WP - 222mmx68mm
36HP/18WP - 222mmx90mm
48HP/24WP - 222mmx110mm
Please note that these boxes are not compatible with White Night whole pans.
This paint box is recommended by the UK artist Judi Whitton in her book "Painting Venice".
In fact this small paint box will hold 8 of the empty full pans Ken Bromley sells, which are a little shorter than W&N. You can also fit 6 half pans down the middle. That's 14 in all...surely enough colours for your away days and holidays!! Sue B (Halifax) on 27 May 2008
I bought the small palette that holds six full pans, but in actual fact will hold eight White Night Pans.
A great little palette with plenty of mixing space and a built in thumb ring for holding the palette, while you paint.
The only critisism I can make about this product is it's a tad expensive, in my opinion, for what at the end of the day, is an empty tin box, but what a useful tin box. Tony (Liverpool) on 16 May 2007
So handy and easy to use. I really enjoy it. Actually, I have two, one large and one small. Marlene Goodman (Shell Beach, USA) on 21 Mar 2012
