John Pike Watercolor Palettes is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the deep wells and large mixing areas. Just added this to some of my other pallets in my watercolor studio. It’s airtight and with a damp sponge the watercolor stay fresh, just like out of the tube.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Watercolor Palette This is the best watercolor palette! Large, durable and heavy duty palette. Lots of room for all my watercolor paints and I can leave them with the cover on. Love using it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Size! The big work size is what I like best in the John Pike Palette. It gives plenty of room to mix colors and maybe even leave them for later. The plastic does stain, especially with the staining watercolors, but the surface easily wipes clean and is ready for new use with no problem. I'm not completely happy about trying to get it open — sometimes it takes a minute, but perhaps with use the plastic sides will give a little better. Overall, I'm pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the blocked-off wells I have not used this big well palette yet (other commitments have kept me away!), but I already know it is going to be better than the palette I have. Not only are the wells roomy, but there is a little barrier across the front of each well, which keeps the paint from running out at the most inopportune moments. I won't say it will keep in an ocean of mixed paint if you tilt the palette, but it's an improvement I haven't seen elsewhere and I wonder why no one else has thought of it. The lid is a little hard to remove (directions are given - follow them!), but your paints aren't going to spill everywhere, and if you aren't transporting it, you don't have to click it down hard. I'm rating the performance as "excellent," based on common sense, since I haven't actually used it yet...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plenty of room to play with colors I love the size of this palette and the number of wells it has. The lid more than doubles the amount of space for mixing paint. After scrubbing the surfaces with a nonabrasive cleaner, paint puddling seems not to be much of a problem for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great size! I bought this palette for my first watercolor class and I love it! Perfect size, portable, sturdy. It's a bit hard to open but it maintains the paint well protected. The instructions are very clear, the packaging is ok. Everybody in my class has the same palette so we can put the colors in the same well and be on the same page!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still going after 32 Years I have not been painting since 1983 and just decided to take a watercolor class. I got this palette out and it still is good and durable after all those years. You can't beat that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pike Pallette beats all for many reasons It's stronger/heavier than others, so it travels and doesn't move in most wind. I am on my 2nd after 40 years watercolor. Best, are flat wells, can't accumulate water, diluting the color in the wells. I hate that about other pallettes. One big mixing area encourages morph colors, keeps more harmonious. One by one, each student switches to this JP small-well. Keep<20$

Do paints bead up on John Pike palettes?

Asked by: Deborah0905
Thank you for contacting us. The palette is made of ABS plastic and watercolor paints will bead up on the plastic surface. I hope that this information is helpful.
