This beautiful watercolor palette, about 5" in diameter, is a perfect companion for any watercolor or gouache project. The porcelain surface is superior to plastic for mixing because paint spreads out rather than beading up, so it's easier to see what the mixed color will look like on paper. A central well is surrounded by six equally-sized wells on the outside, so the palette looks like a flower. Try making your own color wheel, with white in the center. Made in Japan.
