I love this palette, very light weight, easy to hold while painting, nice big mixing areas and room for two retractable brushes and a sponge, along with 16 colors in half pan box I order. LOVE it. Elaine Magliacane (Charleston, USA) on 22 Apr 2012
I find the plastic pan holders much easier to use, lighter to hold and easier to clean. I don't need the thumb hole so I glued a piece of plastic over it and filled the gap with more pans (blue tack keeps them in. It is a little rough on the edges, could have been a little better finished, but for the price it is a good little pad holder. CAROLE SANDERS (NR LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom) on 8 May 2012
Deffinately the best art purchase I have ever made. Affordable, lightweight, great sized mixing areas, robust for travel and plein air...Perfect!
I have the full size pan and use small pans in it that I fill with tube watercolour, that way I get more colour choice and I can change colours for different locations/projects with ease. Anita Davies (March, United Kingdom) on 23 Mar 2013
