    Getting organized

    I have several Iris Palettes and realized I missed the point in terms of being organized. So, I opted to buy Helen’s Painter’s palette because it lends itself to very limited and specific pigments. I use mine for neutrals. The top 3 are ‘cool’ and the 3 below those are ‘warm’. I also like the dimensions which allow it to fit very conveniently pretty much everywhere.

    Lovely paint palettes

    I have bought these before and they have all been exquisite

    This time one wasn't quite so as it wasn't routed properly and so had sharp edges not sanded in the wells making it difficult to fit the pans in

    Guess one must have slipped quality control

    A neat little accessory for artists

    I gave it 3 stars because the leather cover came with a lot of grease stains on the front and there is a significant chip in the wood, right above the brush holder. I had also emailed peg & awl before making the purchase asking for some additional information about the product and never received a reply.
