I ended up making my own as well - the commercially available ones are either too small (P3) or ridiculously large(Masterson).

A fan of ridiculously large? :-) I'm using the Masterson sponges from their wet palette (they sell refills) for my home made palette, seems pretty good.

I like ridiculously large. I do some experiments with color mixing on the palette - so I need the room. That one sounds just about right.

I also do drybrushing by wiping the brush on the back of my left hand... for some reason folks think that I am strange when I am painting....

Would shallow wells in the paper be worthwhile? My first experience with a wet palette was less than optimal because my work surface sloped. I wonder if using something like this and a dental plaster positive to press dimples into parchment would be helpful? (And would they last once wet?)

Shadowforge and Willy Miniatures use closing blisters.

I use a Wonderbread sandwich container as my main wet palette. It's a little odd shaped, but it's a handily portable size and has a tight fitting lid.

Rubbermaid (and other similar) containers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and would also work well.

I ended up making my own as well - the commercially available ones are either too small (P3) or ridiculously large(Masterson).

The Masterson's Handy Palette is 7" x 8.5" on the working surface, a nice size for a small desk. They make a much larger one, but I don't have room for it, and I don't need a larger one the way I work.

How big is the P3 wet palette?

Guess they weren't carrying the Handy Palette when I looked; the one I saw was ridonkulous, and it had wells in it for paints that I didn't need. The P3 wet palette didn't look much bigger than the palette I made out of a blister pack.

I have the P3 wet pallet and do want something bigger. But now I'm thinking adding a second Reaper pallet might be a better solution. I have a very small workspace.

Just noticed that the smaller Master's Brush Soap container would be the *perfect* container for a DIY wet palette!

The soap shrinks (but is still usable) if exposed to air for several days, then can be easily removed from the screw-top container.

EDIT: Cheesecake factor has take home boxes which fit PERFECTLY sponges. Need to test it out!
