Like the original Portable Painter Classic, the palette in the Classic Plus Kit is about the size of a standard smartphone, one-inch thick and just 5.1oz (146gm); yet it converts in seconds to a complete watercolor painting system. It fits effortlessly in a pocket, purse or daypack, so it's ideal for travel on or off-road. It includes: Two large, detachable water containers, two folding palette plates with plenty of deep mixing wells, an anodized aluminum clasp and a silicone retaining band. In addition to the standard twelve empty half-pans (W&N size) the Classic Plus Kit comes with twelve new Expansion Pans that are engineered to fit perfectly in the brush slot. Three of these are pre-installed, so the palette is ready for eighteen of your favorite colors. Instead of the original double brush, the Classic Plus Kit includes a set of two water-brushes.

The kit is packaged in an attractive, microfiber drawstring pouch with satin lining. It‘s large enough to hold the palette along with some of your other favorite brushes, pencils, sharpeners and erasers, etc.

The original Classic palette has room for twelve half-pans.

They allow the Classic palette to hold fifteen, sixteen or even eighteen colors, with no increase in size or weight! There are two types of Expansion Pans: Single and Split cavity, that both hold a genuinely useful amount of pigment. Sets are available as a stand-alone accessory or as part of our new Classic Plus Kit. They can be secured in the palette with reusable adhesive disks (included). Once installed, they look and feel like original equipment.
