Two Tiny Watercolor Palettes

I had purchased this cute little wooden watercolor palette from Etsy store, Go Draw, a few weeks ago. It’s made out of wood with 15 porcelain wells and mixing area. It is small enough to attached to a pocket size sketchbook with bull clips. But after not using it for a week, couple of the paints dried up and came loose. My only complaint.

I also have a metal one that is a size of a business card still have all the paints in the pans after many weeks of no use. This is from Expeditionary Art and this is the Pocket Palette. It has 14 pans which works very well for me. I carry only two water brushes, fountain pen, bull clips and a sketchbook along with a white uniPosca and a tiny water spray. I switching back to this palette.

Expeditionary Art does make art tool kit cases to fit a sketchbook and an art supplies. I bought the smallest one that fits a pocket size sketchbook 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. The case measured 4-3/4″ x 7-1/2″ (12cm x 19cm) closed. But with what I carry, it only fitted the sketchbook, fountain pen, white pen, business cards and shop towel. I couldn’t put my bull clips and second water brush and the uniPosca white marker. When I closed it, it was bulky. I love the idea but have to pass on this one. So Expeditionary Art was kind enough to let me returned it.

I think I’ll just stick with my pencil pouch with the pocket palette minus the go draw palette. By the way the pencil pouch is from Cavallini Papers & Co in San Francisco. I might get their larger pouch from one of their distributors.
