with matching expansion pans
The original Portable Painter Classic is about the size of a standard smartphone, only one-inch thick and just 5.1oz (146gm.) Yet it transforms in seconds to a complete, professional palette with a sturdy pedestal base, that’s great on uneven surfaces. It fits effortlessly in a pocket, purse or daypack and it’s ultra-light for travel, both on or off-road. So it’s the perfect choice for urban sketching, journaling and plein air painting. It includes two detachable water containers, two folding palette plates with plenty of deep mixing wells, twelve detachable half-pans (W&N size), a synthetic, folding, double-brush, anodized aluminum clasp and a silicone band to retain the clasp and hold extra brushes and pens while painting. You’ll find that the Classic is awesome for on the go and can even be used hands-free, straddling a knee. Fill it with your favorite colors then slip it in a pocket and you’ll have everything you need to paint, wherever life takes you: Just Add Water!

NEW Classic Expansion Pans are Now Available at Wholesale
Watercolor Artists love these new Classic Expansion Pans: Carry more colors in the Classic, with no increase in size or weight
These expansion pans fit precisely in the brush slot of the Classic palette. They instantly increase its ability to carry up to eighteen colors. There are two types: Single and Dual cavity.
Single cavity pans hold about the same amount of pigment as a standard full pan, so they are ideal for frequently used colors.
In the Dual pans, each cavity holds a little less than one of the current half pans, so they are well suited for specialty / accent colors. Both
types of pan can be intermixed to deliver the ideal number you prefer to use.
