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".
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
Very practical box and the pans fit nice and tightly within it. I will use it for studio work but inner pallets are large enough for outdoor painting without a problem as well. Adriano Janezic (Postojna, Slovenia) on 20 Jun 2012
