PORTABLE PAINTER MICRO
Frequently Asked Questions
Filling your Micro Palette
Why The Micro Is Sold Without Paints
Watercolor artists are typically very particular about the specific colors they use. They often use different color palette selections depending on the subject they plan to paint. For instance, in Hawaii, the palette may lean more towards blues and greens, whereas in the desert southwest, it’s more likely that reds and earth-tones will predominate. This is why an empty palette is a welcome sight! The Portable Painter Micro includes six detachable half-pans so that artists can easily customize their color palette. The Micro is designed to accept standard size half and full pans.
Adhesive Disks for Half-Pans
Small disks of re-usable adhesive are provided to secure the pans in the palette, though they can still be removed: Just use the tip of a palette knife to lever up the the edge of a pan and the adhesive seal will be broken. The pans can then be removed and re-attached as needed.
Why Is There A Lip On One Edge of the Pans
The lip is there to create a little more separation between the pans. This can help minimize colors accidentally mixing between adjacent pans.
