A handy, compact little box, that holds 12 half pans perfectly. The metal case is quite thin. Could be a little sturdier.

Great Quality at a Great Price! 28 Mar. 2014
By TroutChaser - Published on Amazon.com

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!! Why pay more for an expensive empty Schminke metal box of the same size (which I did before I found this-LOL!) when this one is nearly the same (the only difference is the mixing wells on the lid--Schminke has 3). It's a small metal box (3"x5"), well-made, perfect for adding to a portable sketch/painting kit. I like to have multiple boxes for different applications, to leave in the truck, for plein air work, and for grab-and-go travel. This box worked perfectly. It holds 12 half pans in the clips provided, but you can remove that bottom layer and use your own pans, which is what I did. Here's how:

*Take out the bottom tray with clips, which is just an insert.

*Buy some empty half and/or full pans (Jackson's Art Supply sells these, too).

*Get some Museum Putty.

*Plan out your pan configuration and which colors you want to include on a piece of paper. (And I always write out the contents of the pan on the bottom with a Sharpie prior to filling so I'll remember which color was used)

*Place the pans in the box using a small bit of museum putty (this stuff is really sticky, but is removable with no residue!) It's easier to put the pans in first before filling with paint so you can really press the pan in the putty to make sure it's good and secure.

*Fill the pans with tube watercolor and set aside for them to dry out (depending on the color, it can take many days).

That's all there is to it! I was able to fit 18 half pans and 2 full pans in mine! I wanted to post a photo, but it looks like you can't do that.

If you like travel kits, this one will fit it perfectly!

Sometimes old ways of doing things works better 21 Jun. 2013

I absolutely do not like plastic palette boxes. Paint pulls away and falls out. So much for new technology. I decided to try a metal palette box with full and half pans. It is so versatile. Change your palette with easy snap in and out pans. I like to buy tubes and fill my own pans. I also mix my own convenience colors. I now have the big box with four rows and this little one too. I highly recommend these products.

I have small girl hands and I love how it feels and is easy to hold securely ... 18 Aug. 2014
By Kathleen MacDonald - Published on Amazon.com

This lovely little tin is more than I expected! It's much more compact from what I had pictured. I have small girl hands and I love how it feels and is easy to hold securely in one hand. I bought 20 half pans and 2 full pans thinking that I would have extras to play with. Nope. All the pans fit in after I removed the pan clipping insert. This lovely little treat will fit 24 half pans! Every time I open it I feel like I`ve stumbled into the world of Harry Potter where small items can conceal massive treasures! I bought some cheap magnetic tape and stuck it to the bottoms of each of my pans. Now as I develop my mixing habits I can easily rearrange my pans! I gave this product 5 stars as it deserves it. One CONCERN though is that my order was packed in a bubble wrap envelope. This item shipped from Sweden to Northern Canada and on its great journey was slightly dinged and damaged. The top of the tin has some dents in it. This does not effect the workings but it isen`t very attractive. I would recommend asking for extra packaging if it is going to be shipped over long distances. I`m almost considering ordering a second one, but as it works and serves its purpose, I might just suck it up and enjoy what I have.

Perfect paint box with an acceptable price 5 May 2014
By Allison A - Published on Amazon.com

I have been using this box for several month now and I love it. I purchased it for my sketch kit which I carry daily. The box is ideal. It is so small, I forget it's in my bag. It holds a large palette for the size. I love being able to swap the pans out. The mixing areas work well and cleanup nicely. I suggest you purchase extra half pans to have on hand. Although it is designed to hold 12 half pans, it actually can fit up to 14 without any modification to the box- simply slide them over in the holder. With modification, I can fit 20. I liked the kit so much, that I just ordered the large box with full pans for plein air and the studio. Enjoy! What a great box!

Nice little travel box to customize with your separately purchased whole- or half-pans of paint. 23 Nov. 2013
By J Allen - Published on Amazon.com

Nice metal box in which to put some plastic whole pans and/or half pans to be filled with colors of one's choice. Perfect!
I bought the plastic whole-pans and half-pans from the same supplier as this box. Excellent!
