A quality, good-value-for-money empty metal box which is enamelled black on the outside and white on the inside. Similar to the Winsor & Newton heavyweight metal whole pan boxes. The central well of the 16 half pan palettes can also be used to store extra half pans.

I really like this 16hp.box which can hold up to 24hp. I already have the W&N one, but needed a second box for some extra colors left over. This empty box is well made, but there are some minor imperfections in the black enamel, like mini bubbles which make enamel to pop off.(2 mini dots by now). I do still like this box, but would prefer it was perfect, like the W&N one I bought last year. Other than that it's just impaccable. Marie-A. Desilets (Yamachiche, Canada) on 21 Dec 2014
It is not as heavyweight as Holbeins but heavier than aluminium palettes. I love this palette. Perfect for my next travel overseas. Great size. The thumb ring underneath works. I should have bought the full pan version and not the half pan because with full pans, you can always revert back to half pans but but not if you get the half pan palette. Full pans are great bec you can dip entire brush and not just the tip. I seldom use the tips of my brush. Jose L Galvez Jr (Pasadena, USA) on 1 Jun 2015
Have purchased both the half pan and the tube boxes, both feel and look well made and ideal sizes for travelling. However it is very tight getting new 5ml paint tubes in the tube version and I had to roll over the ends of each tube to finally get them in! Carol Hughes (Fareham) on 19 Oct 2007
