Oh Nooooooo, Not Another Gadget - Portable Painter Indiegogo Campaign

As if I really needed more in the way of art supplies!!!  I couldn't resist this new find after seeing it posted by another member on the Facebook Artists' Journal Workshop Group.

Note:  My own personal photos after receiving this today.  Better photos can be found with the link at the bottom of this post)

This compact little palette (the size of today's mobile phones), opens up and is put together to fit across your leg.

It comes with a double ended travel brush which looks like a size 2 and size 4 round.

The two end pieces act as water cups and each have an indent where you can lay the brush across when not in use.

It comes with removable 1/2 pans you can fill with tube paint.  It WILL hold the W&N 1/2 pans but other empty 1/2 pans may not fit down in the slots..........but the ones I have will still sit most of the way down in the slots and the palette will still close.

The only drawback I can see at this point is that little metal clip that closes the case up.  Someone like me could easily lose that piece when palette is in use.

UPDATE:  Going to see how this holds up to save from losing the metal clip while palette is in use.  It's a camera lens cover keeper.  Attached is a carbine hook I can quickly hook to my jeans belt loop or a loop/ring on my bag.

And if I were to make a suggestion to the creator of this little palette, it would be to consider offering one to hold whole pans for those who prefer them over the half pans.


Closed up next to a Samsung S5 Cell Phone

The set comes with empty half pans you can fill yourself, but just to show W&N half pans fit perfectly in this portable painter

For more information about this little jewel..............

Another noteworthy tidbit of information, if you need to write the founder/creator of this palette, they are quick to respond.

Maybe you could drop the closure thingy in one of the water pots while you are working as long as you could remember to retrieve it as you empty the water.

Oh I'm sure I'll come up with something but your idea is a good one too :-)

I was thinking to use one of the water cups to hold a couple of brushes and a pencil while working and might put my little clasp in that cup.. I do really like how it fits securely on your leg and I have found a half folded washclothplaced under makes a good and handy blot cloth.

Will you have more photos once you start using it?

What a neat idea using one of the cups to hold brushes and pencil! Also like your idea of the wash cloth under the palette. I will try to remember to post once I finally decide what colors and brand of paints I want to use and actually use it :-)

The newer versions of the PP come with an elastic band to slide the clip onto. Maybe you could contact the company for one?
