Paint palettes are an absolutely essential piece of kit for artists to be able to arrange and mix their colours whilst painting. Easy to clean once used, and thoroughly handy to help the painting process glide along, a good quality paint palette is something that is going to be a key element of any painter's tool kit, whether they are a professional or a hobbyist. We have art palettes here that are of the top of the range, as well as a number of options which are super affordable while still high quality.
Wooden Artist Palettes
Firstly, we have a number of palette designs that are made, in the traditional style, out of wood. These classic wooden artist palettes come in oval designs as well as in rectangles, with each having been crafted in a convenient ergonomic shape. These palettes are strong and durable but also surprisingly lightweight, so that you will be able to hold them easily as you paint. With a great range of larger palettes to more compact wooden designs, take your pick from this top class selection of wooden palettes.
Porcelain & Ceramic Palettes
Porcelain or ceramic art palettes are also well worth considering, as they provide a surface on which the paint will not evaporate too quickly. This means that you will be able to paint for longer with your mixes without having to refresh. You can choose from individual palette pots or connected daisy shape palettes. Some of these designs even give you the benefit of having lids, so that your paint will be workable for longer.
There are also plenty of plastic palettes. These art palettes offer the advantage of containing distinct mixing wells, and so they would be perfect for the artist who likes to keep their paints nice and organised as they are arranging and mixing the different colours. Plastic has the great advantage too of being strong without being overly heavy, and these qualities come into their own in a handheld palette design. You can choose from a range of clever and convenient shapes, including rectangular palettes, flower shapes, kidney shapes and deep well trays.
