NEW Mijello Trucolor Neutral Grey Painting Palettes

Tonal palettes that will change your painting forever — See colors just as they will appear on your canvas!

We are so excited here at Jerry's Artarama that the new line of Mijello TruColor Neutral Grey Palettes have come into stock! This is such a revolutionary line of palettes, and we're sure they will change your painting method as soon as you try them out. 3 styles are available: the Ellipse XL, the Artelier Airtight, and the Fredi Weber Tray — one for any painter in acrylics or oils!

Like most of the Mijello palettes, TruColor palettes are made from exceptionally strong, impact and solvent-resistant ABS plastic — the same stuff that is used to make construction hardhats and the like — so you know they'll last. The major advantage of TruColor palettes, however, is of course their unique, true middle grey coloring: the perfect tone for achieving lifelike color mixes!

Sure, your canvas may start out as a blank, white surface, but it won't stay that way for long: why mix your colors on a blank white palette?  White surfaces cast reflections and shadows that affect the appearance of the colors mixed upon them. What looks like a nice dark color on a white palette may turn out to be a muddy mess on a toned canvas. Using a neutral grey palette virtually eliminates this issue! Know immediately if a color is too light or too dark right on the palette: don't risk ruining your painting by applying the wrong color.

 

Aside from being the ideal color-mixing surface, Mijello TruColor Palettes are also the easiest palettes to clean! Let acrylic paints dry on the surface and they peel right off like a window-cling. Oil paints can be wiped away with turpentine or mineral spirits — without staining the palette! In fact, you can use the Artelier style palette to store acrylics for days without drying out, and by wrapping the palette in plastic wrap and putting it in the freezer, you can keep oil paints fresh almost indefinitely!

Check out this product demo for Mijello TruColor Neutral Grey Palettes:

So really, is it any wonder we're excited? When it comes to painting in acrylics or oils, we've finally found the perfect palette! Mijello TruColor Palettes have everything we're looking for: a neutral grey tone for perfect color mixes, ABS plastic construction for durability, an easy-clean surface that doesn't stain, and three different palette styles to choose from. Pick one out for yourself today, we're sure you'll love it just as much as we do!

Received my new grey artelier airtight palette this week. It is fantastic!!!

Florie

I will be traveling and want to take my paints for Plein air work.  I'm thinking of taking water soluble oils and I'm looking at this palette to store and protect the paint.  
How will this palette work with watersolubles?
Will clean up be wipe off or peel off?
Will the 'airtight' keep the paint usable?
What is the weight of the palette with the cover?
Thanks for your help!

Do you carry some sort of clip to easily attatch a canvas in a frame?

heather

You can use Barklips as an alternative to off-set clips.  You simply insert them in the frame and clip them over the stretcher bars of your canvas.

You're right to be excited about this palette! It's everything you claim it to be; I love it.  The neutral grey color really helps in helping me get the right shade of paint I need.  But for the life of me, why would you call it "My Jello" it doesn't even wiggle Smile  thanks again for your prompt and courteous delivery and service...that's why I buy first from Jerry's Artarama. A true six star item in my book.

I have enjoyed using the Fredi Weber and Artelier Airtight in the white color. I am thrilled that you are selling the neutral gray color and will be buying them when the time is right. They white palattes work as advertised and my regular acrylic paints have stayed "wet" for a full week without drying. I have spent many hours searching for a makeshift sealable container. The ones that I found were very expensive (Tupperw...) and didn't have separate color wells nor the preferred gray color. Of course artists will design products specifically designed for their needs.  I may consider using both a grey and a white palette at the same time. Then when I am painting on a light background I will mix the colors on the white and on a darker background use the neutral grey. Thanks to the manufacturer for considering our needs!

RE:  Trucolor Neutral Grey Painting Palettes - Artilier Airtight
I just saw this product and think it's a GREAT idea for plein air painters EXCEPT the mixing area on the palette is way too small!  Can you get one with a mixing area that is 4x larger?  Thank you.  (The airtight lid is fabulous!)

heather

Although there is not a larger version of this palette, the airtight lid can double as a second palette.

Sue Segal

What about for watercolors?  Do they have a specific palette or not?  Stick with what we already have?  Thanks!
