Inspiration comes not only from our painting subjects but very much also from the materials with which we create art.

Be inspired by these little items of medical advertising history! I have a mixture of 10 Sucrets tins of different variants from various periods, evident in the different layout and logo treatments, reflecting the changing aesthetics of Sucrets advertising throughout the decades. Each vintage Sucrets tin is unique from the design, down to its patina, nicks, dents and closure quirks. These tins were sourced from the US. I cleaned them to remove loose rust, then sprayed them with clear acrylic to stop further rusting, preserve the patina and make it more hygienic to use.

If you have not bought vintage items before, please note that the tins listed here are actual vintage with reference to their age, i.e. not just 'vintage-style' or 'retro' with reference to their design. Most vintage items cannot be expected to look flawless, on the contrary, the patina that can only be achieved with age - that wear and tear, that's their exact appeal. I do my best to be honest with descriptions and take photos that best show their condition, so please do check all photos and read the descriptions.

PLEASE HOVER/MOUSE OVER THE PHOTOS TO SEE UP CLOSE. The photos are part of the description, they best communicate the degree of ageing and patina.

As with the other travel palettes, 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 paint 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.
