Palettes are a rigid, flat surface on which a painter arranges and mixes paints. Palettes are usually made of wood, plastic, ceramic, or other hard, inert, nonporous material, and can vary greatly in size and shape. The most commonly known type of painter’s palette is made of a thin wood board designed to be held in the artist’s hand and rest on the artist’s arm. Like traditional palettes, The Mona’s Smile paper palette rests on a hard boxboard back which makes the palette rigid and easier to hold while working. A thumb hole cut in the bottom of the palette provides a comfortable hold and is very similar to the look and feel of the classic wooden palette. Each of the 40 sheets is glue-bound at the top of the pad for easy tearing and disposal. The Mona’s Smile paper palette gives the traditional rigidity for mixing colour but with quick convenient clean up, it’s ideal for packing, storing, and on-the-go traveling.
