All palettes are handcrafted in Pennsylvania, USA. From design, to substrate selection, sanding, branding and finishing; we focus on the details during each step of the process.
Material: Tempered hardboard provides a lightweight product without compromising strength and stability.
Patented Design: The 3 point design provides a universal fit for all body types while keeping your wrist straight, and distributing the palette weight between the hand, rear forearm, and torso. This ensures maximum balance and comfort, and significantly reduces stress on muscles and tendons in the hand, wrist, arm and shoulder.
Finish: The palettes are finished with a non-porous proprietary grey toned satin formulation that is dense, and resistant to water as well as standard artist solvents and mediums. In addition, the finish is crack proof, chip proof, non-yellowing, and freezer safe. Oil paints can be easily cleaned with artist solvents. Detailed cleaning instructions are provided with every product.
