Masterson's multi-purpose palette for all your painting needs... acrylics, watercolors, oils. Join the thousands of artists, students, instructor and hobbyists who choose Masterson Art Products for all of their palette and paint storage needs.
For use with Acrylics use Masterson's patented "Sta-Wet" palette paper and sponge (5 sheets and 1 sponge included). Paints will slowly absorb moisture from the sponge to keep paints wet for hours while the palette is open. The lid will keep your paints clean and moist for days, even weeks! The Super pro features 28 separate wells for holding pigments and 3 divided mixing areas to keep your color ranges separate The inverted lid can be used as an additional, larger mixing area. The lid will keep your paints clean between painting sessions.
For use with Watercolors move the paper and sponge and use all the wells and mixing areas to work with your paints.
For use with Oils remove the acrylic palette paper and sponge Insert your favorite oil palette paper (not included) The lid will keep your paints clean and help retard drying.

The Masterson Palette is the best stay wet palette on the market. I have further extended its use for stay wet acrylics like Gold and Atelier Chroma.
I have had a plate glass insert made (the same size as the sponge). I can now use all types of acrylics and also oil paints. A local glass company made the insert and ground all the edges for safety (Cost about Â£20). The lid extends the palette life of the paint but if it dries it can be easily removed with a DIY window scraper. Brian Bullock (West Midlands) on 9 Sep 2010
This palette is brilliant. I have been looking for a large palette with lots of wells and a lid that I could use for watercolours for ages. I've seen them on US sites but not in the UK. Well done Ken Bromley. It would be excellent if you could provide the palette storage box made by them that is watertight and air tight. It would make transporting to and from classes much easier.

Early days, but so far very impressed with this palette. I have used other UK-produced stay-wet acrylic palettes, but they all failed for various reasons (flimsy materials, poor lid seal, non-durable membranes, etc). The Masterson Super Pro answers all these problems, and I was very pleased to source it at Ken Bromleys. It proves the maxim "You get what you pay for". Full marks to Masterson and Ken.
