Paul W. McCormack Watercolor Palette


Made from sturdy, high-impact plastic, the Paul McCormack Watercolor Palette provides a large, yet separated  mixing area, to keep color mixtures both abundant and clean. Nine 4x4" square central wells are ideal for large paint mixes: place tube watercolors at each corner, apply water, and let the mix rest in the center of the well, where it won't be muddied by other colors. Eighteen smaller 1x1" slanted wells line the sides of the palette, and are ideal for small color mixtures or can be used to store colors in a traditional manner. A convenient snap-on lid serves both as protection for the palette while not in use, as well as a large extra mixing area. Also included is a detailed instructional pamphlet on Paul's methods for using his exclusive palette, providing tips and techniques for managing all your color mixtures.
