EVERLASTING WET PALETTE: WHAT IS IT?

A wet palette is an essential tool for every painter. It is the surface where you will mix your paint, try different paint consistencies and master all kinds of techniques. Its main purpose is to keep your acrylic paint fresh for hours or even days within a sealable wet palette. The Redgrassgames wet palette is designed with the best materials possible and a proprietary patented hydration system. Everything has been designed to help you focus on enjoying your painting sessions.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS for your PAINTER or STUDIO XL wet palette:

Everlasting Wet Palette Tips: Introduction

A wet palette is an essential tool for any miniature painters or for scale modelling. The key working principle of the wet palette is to moisturize paint, so that it does not dry when you are using it. However, while dry palette tends to dry too fast, most regular wet palettes tend to overflow paint with too much water. The Everlasting Wet Palette Tips you’ll read here will help maximise your enjoyment of the experience. 

What is unique about Everlasting Wet Palette, is that the dilution level is very stable thanks to our hydration system.

The first obvious advantage is that it limits paint waste, as the paint stays wet and workable for a long time period.

The second advantage is that it helps you save time, as you don’t have to mix over and over again the same paints, or don’t have to adjust the paint dilution level every other minute.

The third advantage, is that it gives you access to advanced painting techniques with ease as you don’t have to fight with a paint drying too fast, or being too watered.

WHAT KIND OF PAINTS CAN I USE:

Everlasting Wet Palette was designed to be used with hobby paints and level of dilution used in miniature painting. We have tested it extensively with this type of paints, in particular: Citadel, Vallejo/Prince August, P3, Army Painter, AK47, Scale Colors/75, … at different level of dilution.

Outside of hobby paint, there are many different brands of paint and it’s impossible to test everything. Results may vary. But as long as it is acrylics, it should work. Everlasting Wet Palette Tips: If you are using really dry acrylics or heavy body paint, you might have to adapt the level of moisture you put into the foam.

Everlasting Wet Palette Tips: QUICK INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Lay one hydration foam in the bottom case
  • Add water until the hydration foam is very wet
  • Make sure the water level does not exceed the hydration foam height
  • Put a hydration paper sheets over the hydration foam
  • Remove any air bubbles or wrinkles with the flat of your hand
  • The hydration paper should be flat, sticking to the foam with no excess water on top
  • Add your paint on top of the hydration paper. Start painting!

HYDRATION SYSTEM:

  • The hydration may be different from what you are accustomed to and it may takes a few painting sessions before getting used to it.
  • You still need to set your dilution level!
  • Do not wet both sides of the hydration paper
  • For optimal performance, please avoid any source of direct heat or a windy room

THE HYDRATION FOAM:

The foam is naturally mold resistant. You don’t need to add any agent or cleaning product to avoid mildew, mold or bad smell. However, nothing is 100% mould proof.

Everlasting Wet Palette Tip- Clean the foam from time to time with a little bit of soap and warm water.

Never use spirit or alcohol on the foam! Do not clean with boiling water or in a dishwasher.

HYDRATION FOAM VIDEO:

When the foam is not in contact with water, it will dry out and go stiff. This is perfectly normal!

CLEANING:

The ABS case & wavy accessory:

You can easily clean your wet palette with a little bit of warm water and dishsoap. Everlasting Wet Palette Tips like this will keep your wet palette serviceable for years! Any mold growth can be neutralised with a vinegar solution.

If you want to remove cured acrylic paints from your wet palette or accessories (except foam) please use only the following alcohol:

All non-recommended alcohol or spirit may damage or even destroy your wet palette!

Tested & safe:

  • ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL 
  • ISOPROPANOL
  • 2-PROPANOL
  • ALCOOL ISOPROPYLIQUE

Everlasting Wet Palette Tips: CLOSING MECHANISM:

The closing mechanism of the wet palette is composed of a TPE seal and a strap band. Always use the strap band to remove any remaining gap between the top lid and the bottom part.  With the strap band on, you can keep your paints wet for days, even more. With these Everlasting Wet Palette Tips you are good to go! We also have more YouTube videos you can try!
