No more wasted paint... Masterson's patented process keeps acrylics and other water-based paints moist on the open palette for hours. Once the lid is closed, the paints will stay in workable condition for days, even weeks. A wet sponge and special permeable palette paper provide the paint with a constant source of moisture. Paints will not dry out!

Simply soak the palette in water until it is fully saturated. Saturate the sponge and place it in the tray. Lay the palette paper on top of the sponge, wipe off excess water from the paper, and put your paints on the wet paper. The paints will slowly absorb moisture as needed without changing the consistency or color value. You can mix paints on the wet paper without tearing it.

My son needed these things for art class at Catholic School. They have worked so well. Especially the Sta-wet Palette. He had to transport all of his suppies back and forthe to school and the palette with the lid has worked so well. And your prices can't be beat! Thank you so very much.

I order this for a Christmas gift for my mom because she said she wanted one. She said it will come in handy and help her as she paints. My mom's hobby is painting and she's a graphic artist for her town newspaper. She loves to paint w/ arcylic and water colors. She spends several days painting and this product will help her to save her paint she's using for these days on the painting she's doing.

A a wonderful tool to have when painting. Saves $$$$ on paint supplies!
Rated by: Cindy B. in Grand Junction, CO
I LOVE this palette. I've had trouble figuring out how to paint without wasting so much paint (not having had the benefit of any painting class or video) and this is perfect. I have just ordered a second one so that I don't have to "flow over" onto paper plates with extra colors or mixes. These are handy to hold while painting too.

The Masterson palette, sponge and palette liners are invaluable in saving your acrylics or oil paints from drying on the palette between painting sessions. I can attest that I have been able to keep my acrylics wet and usable for 2 - 3 weeks—as long as the sponge is wet, and the palette’s lid is tightly replaced between sessions. I have never had any system as useful as this one. It is truly a godsend. Although the paint and sponge will remain wet for weeks, it is important to remember during lengthy projects to wash and rinse the sponge often—especially if you are sensitive to mold and mildew—or else the sponge will mold. I have used a diluted bleach solution on my palette’s sponge with no problem whatsoever. I have saved a great deal of money on my paints since using this palette system; there is virtually no paint that must be thrown away from drying out.

I wish I would have gotten one of these long ago, it's great! Paint stays workable for days and the paper is very sturdy and can be used over and over again.

Love the palette! I have been using the larger one for years and now teaching this is the perfect solution for carrying and using the acrylics for my class.
Rated by: Patsy M M. in Meridian, MS
I am very impressed with my paint pad. I am a beginner paint student and this pad helps me by keeping my paint wet so I can take my time.
Rated by: Lynn M. in San Diego, CA
The best way to keep the acrylic paint I'm using usable for days; esp. if custom colors.
Rated by: Pat D. in West Chester, PA
I love this product. It saves me time and paint. Prompt delivery is a plus.
Rated by: Peggy H. in Carlton, OR
I really love these palettes. You can wash the paper over and over again and it doesn't to it any harm. It is so great to not waste paint all the time. It definitely says time and money. Thanks.
Rated by: Desiree A. in Orlando, FL
This is a great little palette! It is really neat because the paper is so durable, it won't tear and you can actually wash it off and reuse it. I like that I can store my paints for so long and they are still wet when I get back to them.
Rated by: Denise G. in Madison, CT
Well this is a handy little helper! I never had one before and it does a great job, the paint does stay moist till the next day and days after, it has been a great help.
Rated by: Greg H. in Hoffman Estates, IL
Perfect for painting minitures- small amounts of paint dry too quick without it!
Rated by: o d. in live oak, FL
A much needed tool for the novice and the individual requiring a "back in a moment" mode of painting.
Rated by: Linda C. in OlD Saybrook, CT
These palette should be on the top of every artist supply list. I use acrylics and my paints stayed fresh for a week. No more dried up paint or paper plates to toss out. Saves money on paint and the cleanup is a breeze. The price was very affordable and the deliver fast. Thanks
Rated by: Pat F. in Seattle, WA
Found these palettes to be great for saving china paints which are mixed with media and stay moist on the tile in the palette. You are the only source I could locate for the product.
Rated by: Patty D. in Aguanga, CA
I love these Sta-Wet Palettes! I have a large one also, but this smaller size is just perfect for most of my jobs. The paint really stays wet without any waste. I just ordered one for my friend in Italy too. Every painter should have one.
