Palettes - an essential element of any artist's toolbox

Picture the scene of an artist painting Plein air. The image you have in mind probably includes an artist holding a paint palette in one hand while using the other to place their paintbrush on an easel.

A palette is a quintessential piece of equipment to help an artist hold and mix paint.

  • A plastic palette is the most popular choice for beginner artists as it is light and cheap. Because they are washable and durable, plastic palettes are also the best choice for acrylic and watercolour artists. And for those painting Plein air, they're easy to carry around.
  • Wooden palettes are a traditional artist tool and are best for oil paints. To prevent the oil from being sucked out of the points, wooden palettes should be prepared with linseed oil

Important factors to consider when selecting which palette to purchase:

1. Portability - will you be painting on the go or remaining in the studio?

2. Cost - the price of a palette can vary based on its longevity and quality (choose from plastic, ceramic or wooden)

3. Shape - you must choose a palette that's comfortable for you. Do you just need room for a few colours or a larger palette to mix multiple shades? We stock palettes in traditional oval, rectangular or even flower shapes (take your pick).

4. Colour - select a neutral base colour like grey or wood to clearly observe light from dark colours or opt for white or green to suit your preference.

5. Disposable or long-lasting - are you a painter working on a long-term project or a novice looking to try out a few different painting styles? Select the option that will work best for you.
