Title: Porcelain Nesting Bowls
Post by: BeaSue on January 06, 2017, 11:36:55 AM
One day, I want to get a really nice porcelain palette. Until then, I have found a great solution for those times when I need a lot of paint for a big area and don't want to wipe off my entire palette for that, or use other dishes.

I found these cute porcelain nesting bowls at Dick Blick,http://www.dickblick.com/products/nesting-porcelain-bowls/] [url]http://www.dickblick.com/products/nesting-porcelain-bowls/ (http://[url)

These are the small size, 3 inches in diameter. They come 5 per set--with a lid. About $13 for the set.


I'll be painting a sunrise sky reflected in water and this is a nice way to hold my paint (Azo Orange, Translucent Yellow, and Quinacrodone Coral).

And...I just remembered that I had a generous gift card to an art supply store given to me by my daughter for Christmas. So...I ordered myself a Stephen Quiller porcelain palette! Very happy about this!  :yippee:

Susan,

I was looking at something similar today in an art store but wanted one with a cover.  Does yours have a cover?

Love how you arranged your paints in a color wheel fashion.

Mea. This photo isn't mine; it's from an art shop website.

Yes, it comes with a plastic lid.

Several years ago I purchased Stephen Quiller's color wheel after watching one of his tutorial videos. Well worth the purchase. I'm told that this palette comes with a chart Quiller has prepared that shows the buyer how to set up their palette according to the color wheel, so that opposites will make nice greys.

The Quiller palette is great! Be sure to let us know how you like the porcelain one. They are also available filled with watercolor paint from Quiller's website.

I use a glass sheet for my home palette, but have a Quiller travel palette by Guerrilla Artist. It's sturdier than the regular plastic Quiller palette and smaller.

I had a workshop with Stephen Quiller in Yosemite last year. It was AMAZING! I bought a set of of his brushes from The Brush Guys.com.  I really like them for traveling and they can be used with acrylic.

Quiller's well used Quiller palette

After reading all of these comments I may need to invest in a Quiller porcelain palette soon!

Very nice, BeaSue. That thing must weigh in at a billion pounds.  :2funny:

I use a limited palette so bought this one with a cover and it weighs a ton. It doesn't move around when you mix your paint unlike the plastic ones do.

Although Jerry's sells it for about $23 right now.


 :thankyou:

 :heeha: Hi Rick!  :wave: Nice to see you are still poking about.  I do like the porcelain palettes, but don't have room to keep one of those monstrous types. I do have a small porcelain slant palette which I love, not too heavy and it's perfect to take plein air with me.... I can sit it on a rock and it doesn't blow away!  ;D

Yes, the Quiller porcelain palette is VERY heavy. but I'm still loving it. Doesn't move at all, and it wipes clean, to a clear, sparkling white, with just a swipe of a paper towel. I would not take it with me if I needed to take a palette somewhere. I'd use one of my older, plastic palettes.
