The Sta-Wet Handy Palette is a compact plastic palette with a lid that will keep acrylics and other water-base paints moist for days. Paints won’t dry out. What makes it work so well? The sponge and special permeable acrylic palette paper can be dampened to provide paint a constant source of moisture. Just soak the palette paper and sponge in water until each is fully saturated. Place sponge in tray and lay paper on it; wipe off excess water and dispense your paints on the wet palette paper surface. The paints will slowly absorb moisture as needed without changing the consistency or color value. Paints can also be safely mixed on the surface without tearing the wet palette paper. When the air-tight lid is closed the paints will stay fresh for a couple of weeks. This palette can also be used with oil paints by removing the sponge. The lid may be used for extra area for paint mixing. Additional palette paper and a new sponge may be purchased separately.
To avoid mold growing in this humid environment, use distilled water and avoid exposing palette to situations where it may get overly warm like a bright sunroom table or in a hot car. It is important to thoroughly wash your sponge periodically. The paint stains do not matter just keep it mold-free.
