Quality How would you describe the quality of this product? Best quality paintbox I've found. Excellent smooth enamel surfaces in mixing wells, and nicely textured flat surface for heavier mixes. Performance How did this product perform compared to your expectations? Exceeded my expectations. Use How did you use this product? This goes everywhere with me. In my backpack for plein air, in studio which is onboard my catamaran, never had an issue carrying on flights in my carryon luggage. Value Was this product true to its value? Should I ever need to replace this paintbox, it will be with an identical box. Overall Experience What was your overall experience with this product? I have had this paintbox coming up on 5 yrs., it has performed exceptionally throughout my travels in the Caribbean, South and Central America, and North America. I must say this along with my sable brushes is my most treasured piece of equipment.

Quality How would you describe the quality of this product? The quality of this product is fantastic! I was on the market for something for a while, but did not want to spend hundreds of dollars on a Robertson style box. The thing is made with a sturdy construction. The enamel covered steel is absolutely a dream to mix on. Aces. Performance How did this product perform compared to your expectations? I was worried from the pictures that this thing would maybe be to big, or too long for what I was after. I was greatly delighted to see the size of it when I came in the mail. It is rather slim, and fits perfect in the hand. It opens and closes really nice, and the pans it comes with are nice. For those of you who read the palette forums, and are on the fence about this, maybe because it is a little expensive, or you are worried about it being to heavy for travel because it is steel. Collect those worries, and doubts about this product, and throw them away. This thing is magic. Use How did you use this product? As an art student, I am painting everyday on projects and for work to sell, this thing get's used it's fair share, even been dropped a few times. This is the only palette I use in the studio as well as for plein air and it works like a charm. Plenty of mixing space, and four compartments for large washes. Value Was this product true to its value? Yeah it is a little expensive. But would I want some cheapo palette that I just have to replace or am not satisfied with? No. Sometimes you just have to realize you gotta spend some to get some quality products. Overall Experience What was your overall experience with this product? An overall great experience! I would also like to recommend getting the 12 whole pan palette because then you have the option of putting whole and half pans with no problem. Daniel Smith makes great paints, and sells quality gear. Great company, and I will definitely be doing more business with them!
