About this deal

With practice, you’ll be able to use it for any project and apply some pretty cool techniques that would be difficult with a regular palette. hits this same Well, if you’ve added too little, your paints will dry start to go dry, and patches of the hydration paper will also remain dry to the touch.

When you’re ready to clean the palette, you can use soap and water and rinse off the palette in the sink. The key working principle of the wet palette is to moisturize paint, so that it does not dry when you are using it. The second advantage is that it helps you save time, as you don’t have to mix the same paints over and over again, or have to adjust the paint dilution level frequently.

A notable limitation of the wet palette, or more of something that might annoy you (as it did me) is how hard it is to remove the lid of the V2 wet palette. I have no idea what the sponge like foam material is and I believe this is the main selling point of the palette, it is cold and moist to the touch prior to any water being added and the paper “sticks” to the foam for a great connection meaning, hydration of the upper palette paper is very good indeed. The foam has a very high water retention and is totally odourless, I believe it is also resistant to the growth of mold etc (I have seen several painters growing fungi and other mycelia type organisms in their palettes! It is adjustable to fit a variety of different sized hands and fingers, and it is easy to rotate the top of the handle to get better access to all sides of the model. While I wasn’t a fan of how tightly the lid stuck to the bottom tray, the seal does work really well.

I’m sure many people will be happy about more painting space, but the old Painter was already a bit too big for my compact painting station. Then some time ago, I saw the pre-prder and the new Studio XL palette (20 x 30cm) drew my attention. In this article, I review the Redgrass Games Everlasting Wet Palette Painter 2 after using it in a variety of commissioned miniature painting projects. I was able to relay my used paper and work on it again without any deterioration to the paper’s surface.This works better for me than the AK palette that it replaces BUT no matter how careful you are the paint will bleed through and mark the foam no matter what it says in the description. In the name of supporting a small, independent business who make some really special products, get it here. With a bunch of unpainted Space Marines kicking around, I decided it was time to add a splash of Dark Angels colour to my little grey spacemen. We already have content lined up for the first four issues and we are really excited about delivering for you a product unsurpassed within our niche market!

The handle then comes with a metal disc with a sticky side, so you can stick that to your desk and "park" the handle there when not using it so it doesn't fall over. With other palettes, the hydration membrane can often overly saturate your paints and make them separate on your palette. The shallow depth of the palette means you have great access to the paints without having to incorporate unnatural use of the brush for mixing or to get paint on your brush in the first place. The paper on top should be wet to the touch, but not be so saturated that there is standing water on top of it.

You can see a few examples of my use of the Everlasting wet palette for painting scale models and miniatures.

Let’s start by saying that I have been using the previous version of the Redgrass Games wet palette since a little under three years ago. I’ve been able to leave paints for days and while they might separate, a quick mix has them as fresh as ever.

You just dampen the foam, squeeze out the extra water, put it in the bottom of the container, add a bit more water (too just below the top of the foam), then place your palette paper on top and you're ready to go!
