I’ve re-purposed a couple of the Qor Introductory tins. This one, I used Amazing Casting Resin to seal in some whole pans in the shape of a color wheel. I’ve used up most of the paint from the original set and haven’t decided what I put in next.
The other tin is the smaller size without a hinge, and I decided to fancy up the lid. I used acrylic for because I wanted to get more of a sandy texture. This time I bought some empty pans and cut strips of magnetic tape to hold them in the tin. I use this palette for my seascape paintings.August 28, 2017 at 8:43 am #95529
I have a painted ladies (Victorian homes) palette from a makeup tin:August 28, 2017 at 8:45 am #95530
The palette, and paints when mixed with a bit of white…

Ooh! That looks like an interesting tin. And some interesting colors. What are the colors in the bottom row. They look yummy!August 28, 2017 at 8:50 am #95533
Thank you! Holbein does have some interesting colors!August 28, 2017 at 8:52 am #95534
But my mainstay travel tins are two pans that I made my own with my favorite (current) travel colors. The larger pan is mostly Daniel Smith colors, and a Holbien Quin Gold… I have swapped out the two Primatek colors now for others because of my second tin.I prefer it for making skin tones. The second are my use-them-all-the-time Daniel Smith Primateks. Primatek names next…August 28, 2017 at 8:54 am #95535
My favorite Daniel Smith Primatek paints.August 28, 2017 at 8:55 am #95536
Great colors! The only thing I don’t like about the Primateks is that they dry out so much in the palette, and I have difficulty getting them to rewet sometimes. They’re one of the few paints that I prefer to use fresh from the tube (I tend to be a watercolor pan enthusiast).August 28, 2017 at 8:56 am #95537
And my changing larger pan. I keep my full pan (preferred) holders in place with blue tack.August 28, 2017 at 8:57 am #95538
How many have several travel palettes? Shore, Painted Ladies, City? Or do you change out the tins to suit where you are going?August 28, 2017 at 8:58 am #95539
I spritz the whoel palette when I am ready to paint then use and eyedropper in my pans… seems to work well. I am also a pan person.August 28, 2017 at 9:00 am #95540
My QoR tin lifts when I use the mixing side — unbalanced! ARGH! Doesn’t yours? Nice idea the wheel… Looks like your seascape palette and my Paitned ladies palette have a lot of the same paints!August 28, 2017 at 9:02 am #95541
My tin of Daniel Smith Primateks and Iridescents. The tin is one that I got at Dollar Tree. It originally held cotton swabs, so I didn’t even have to wash out the residue from candy. Didn’t have to stop myself from eating the candy, either, so that’s a plus!
