I purchased and used a Masterson Sta-Wet Palette Seal for more than 20 years, and finally after long service, the top finally split along the rim - not surprising, considering the heavy use and repeated flexing and stress. I was happy to purchase another one right away, and it's proved perfect for my particular use with alkyd paints, keeping dust and dirt out of the paint between sessions and keeping the otherwise rapidly-drying alkyds useful for a number of days.

Just out of the box and I really like this palette. I was interrupted just after setting up for a project, came back to it today and my paints act like they just left the tube. No surprises with the order, processing or delivery. I will be back!

Great product. A friend who's a professional artist has had one of these for over 20 years and just loves it. Not only does it work - it lasts!
Because acrylics dry quickly, especially in warmer climates, it's hard to prepare a lot of paint for your palette, as it will most likely dry out before you've finished painting. Moisture retaining palettes are a good choice for acrylic painters and well worth the small investment. They are made out of plastic with a base tray and tight-fitting lid. A wet sponge is placed in the base of the tray with a sheet of grease-proof paper on top. The paint is laid on top of the sheet. As the water in the paint evaporates, it's replaced by the water held in the sponge, so your paints stay moist longer, sometimes for days.
