This is the perfect palette to mix watercolors or alcohol markers on! Thank you!
Imagine my surprise when I received this watercolor palette bundle instead of a bundle of their wonderful watercolor paper! LOL!! Mistakes happen for a reason they say and I would never have bought this on my own but it’s a game changer for me!
I am new to watercolor and needed something better than a small palette tray or my class craft mat. I am now in love with these as I can use them to also mix up colors, mica, pearls, etc, into various mediums for all my paper crafting. I use nothing but plastic palette knives on them an they have no scratches. Like all of my Altenew products they arrived in top shop in a beautiful bag inside two pieces of cardboard.
I do wish the palettes were white in order to see all the color combinations we mix up or any mediums we might mix together better. IMHO., The artist would get a more true image of what the mediums true colors, opacity, luminosity, sparkle, shine etc. might be when applied to their surface.
I use these palettes for various uses. They are great! I am glad that I purchased them.
I have something similar that I purchased 10+ years ago that I like a little better. I knew these from Altenew would be thinner, but they arrived slightly bowed. As long as I am not using a very wet medium, they should be fine. However, I would like them better if they were white as opposed to slightly translucent and not bowed.
Highly useful palettes. Useful for watercoloring and ink blending. I damaged mine by mixing some embossing paste on it and scratching up the surface. Have purchased a few times and they were slightly warped, but did flatten under weight.
