Aluminium Palette (AK613)

AK Interactive




Paint mixing is a chore if you’re always struggling to find a suitable surface, which makes palettes a desirable tool, especially if they have multiple wells so you can keep a number of shades of the same base colour on the go at once.  Will 10 wells do you?  Well?  That’s how many you get in this utilitarian 17cm diameter (6.75”) palette that’s available from AK.  The wells are arranged in a circle and it is supplied in a clear bag with header card with no frills.




Aluminium ensures that it’s rugged, and well able to stand up to multiple trips to paint-town, and it would probably also stand up to a journey through your dishwasher, but don’t tell your other half I said that.  The wells are pressed into the surface, and a central flat, stepped area can be used for further mixing if you desire.  The outer edge is rolled under to prevent injury and to give the palette some extra rigidity that shows when you flex it.  That’s it.  I can’t think of anything else to say about it, other than the fact that it is also cheaply priced so that if you leave your paint too long and can’t be bothered cleaning up (you terrible person!), it’s almost disposable.




Speaking as a modeller that scratches about for somewhere to mix paint for detail painting or touch-ups, this is a handy thing to have around.  Buy one or lots, just don’t play frisbee with them!


Very highly recommended.
