Compact, comfortable and conversational, the Expressionist Confidant® palette is perfect for artists who desire a smaller "go to" palette in their studio. This open palette design features an open hand grasp to hold brushes or a mahlstick, and a lower quadrant that can be used for additional mixing, or to hold your medium palette cup and/or paint cloth. The surface area has ample room for color, and is ideal for finishing or detail work being that the design will allow you to work extremely close to your canvas.
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: 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.
