Order and practicality combined with a regal surface area. The Academian® palette provides the artist with a rectangular shaped paint surface suited for preparing a palette with strings (prepared palette). The surface area is large enough for a variety of color arrangements. Additional design features include an open grasping area to hold brushes or a mahlstick, as well as a lower quadrant that can be used for additional mixing, or to hold your medium palette cup and/or paint cloth.
All maple wood palettes are handcrafted in Pennsylvania, USA. From design, to wood selection, sanding, branding and finishing; we focus on the details during each step of the process.
Material: Hard white maple wood provides you with delicate grain lines that will not distract you while mixing paint. In addition, the material is extremely light weight.
Patented Design: The 3 point design provides a universal fit for all body types while keeping your wrist straight, and distributing the palette weight between the hand, rear forearm, and torso. This ensures maximum balance and comfort, and significantly reduces stress on muscles and tendons in the hand, wrist, arm and shoulder.
Finish: The palettes are stained, then finished with a non-porous proprietary satin formulation that is dense, and resistant to water as well as standard artist solvents and mediums. In addition, the finish is crack proof, chip proof, non-yellowing, and freezer safe.
Proper Care: Proper Care : Best if used with oil paint. Avoid digging your palette knife into the surface, and do not use a razor blade. Wet oil paints can be removed with artist solvents and a plastic razor blade. If using solvents, follow proper care instructions provided by the manufacturer.
