1 piece 8-well white plastic palette
The ultra-compact Altoids Smalls is a recycled mint tin, housing an 8-well palette. It is designed to help artists who find themselves constantly on the go and would like a small, light palette handy for when inspiration strikes.
This palette is designed with the objective of being able to carry as many colors as possible in a small case. Think of it as an upgraded dot 'card'. It is ideal for working on smaller pieces or journals, on works where one would not normally lay down big washes or use big brushes, or as a secondary travel palette when bag weight/space is a priority. It is NOT designed to be used as a main palette and will be insufficient as a studio palette, or for use with brushes with tips wider than 8mm. I recommend this palette if your journal is 5"x 8" or smaller, with round brushes size 6 or smaller, filberts and flats with widths of 7mm or smaller.
The 8-well palette is handmade by manually pouring liquid urethane on manually cast moulds. The moulds were cast from 3D-prints of palette configurations that I custom-designed and modelled specifically for each type of tin in my shop. Because of these manual aspects of production, you might find imperfections such as an occasional bubble or uneven bottom. I will ensure that none of the flaws affect the usability of the palettes.
