Wet Palette

  • What is a wet palette

    What is a wet palette ? A wet palette is an essential tool for every painter. It is the surface where you will mix your acrylic paint. But also try different paint consistencies and master all kinds of advanced painting techniques. Its main purpose is to keep your acrylic paint fresh for hours or even days between painting sessions. 

  • How does a wet palette work?

    A wet palette typically consists of a plastic case, a layer of absorbent material or wet sponge and a paper with a porous surface on top. The palette will deliver the right amount of moisture keeping your paint workable for hours.

  • What types of paints work with a wet palette?

    Wet Palettes typically keep your water-based paints fresh and workable.

    Acrylic paint dries quickly because it is water-based, allowing the water to evaporate and the paint to harden. It also contains an acrylic polymer emulsion, which dries and hardens when exposed to air. This quick drying time is popular among artists as it allows for rapid work and layering without waiting for previous layers to dry. However, this can be problematic when mixing paint on a dry surface. Wet palettes have been created to address this issue and help prevent paint waste.

    Gouache paint is a water-based medium similar to watercolor but thicker and more opaque. It is made by mixing pigment with a binding agent, like gum arabic, and water, making it applicable to various surfaces. Gouache can be thinned with water, dries quickly, and is water-soluble, making cleanup easy. This offers a significant advantage over other mediums. Using a wet palette helps stabilize paint consistency, preventing it from drying out or becoming too wet, making it highly recommended for gouache paint.

  • 5 Advantages of using a wet palette?

    1. A wet palette allows you to keep your paints moist and workable for a longer period, which is especially useful when working on large projects or with paints that dry out quickly, such as acrylic or gouache. It also maintains the right paint consistency.

    2. A wet palette is a great surface for mixing paint. It is easier to mix colors on a wet palette, as the paint is more fluid and blends together more easily.

    2. A wet palette helps to keep colors vibrant and true to their original hue, as the moisture in the palette prevents the paint from drying out and becoming dull.

    4. Don't waste your paint anymore and save money! A wet palette is perfect for preserving your expensive paints at the right consistency. Your paints will no longer dry out before you can even use them, which is impossible on a plastic palette.

    5. A wet palette is a convenient way to store and transport paints, as it keeps the paints from drying out and allows you to easily take your paints with you or resume your work later.
