Part I am not a fan of:  The add-on paper requires you to get 6 sets for the smaller or 3 sets for the larger!  I don't need that many!  How about an add on of single sets...

Looks like about $40US for a wet palette that's just slightly nicer than a ziplock box, paper towel, and baker's parchment.

 

I like the idea of a leakproof palette in theory. But I don't believe that it won't leak if you carry it in a bag*, and you certainly can't carry it tilted with any paint in it anyway.

 

* Unless it's both completely watertight and extremely rigid, any pressure on the sides (as in a bag when carried) will cause the container to flex in a way that will allow leaks. Note that this is opinion; I've never seen the real thing.

Meg Maples was sent a prototype to review and she wrote this blog post about it:

http://www.arcanepaintworks.com/blog-1/2017/9/18/everlasting-wet-palette-by-redgrass-games

Long story short, she's not a fan, but being in the southern hemisphere may have been a factor. Redgrass said that the problem she was having of too much water coming through the paper and watering down her paint was due to using heavier body artist's acrylics, but it doesn't seem to make much sense that thinner hobby paints wouldn't be more affected.

For me, I'm happy to stick with home made.

I pledged for it. Curious to see it in action in person.

That's exactly what my wet pallet is except I have the glass version not plastic. I'm curious about the foam. Sometimes I get paint on the towel when I need a bit of extra water to dilute, is the foam washable I wonder. The Painter version is twice the size I need but I like the wavy thing. Bit expensive for me though considering what I have is good enough and dirt cheap. What is that foam made of anyway?

Saw this reviewed a couple times on YouTube and didn't hear many good things, think I'll pass.

Same here.  ~$30 is a bit steep for a wet pallet, but I'm curious about the anti-mold foam.  I'm not necessarily needing the portability, but the form factor is nice and I like the magnetic side wells.

Yep. Like any prototype, they won't know how well it works in practice until it's manufactured. The original wet palette had a membrane, but they couldn't get past the protoype stage. Just imagine if they didn't do this additional product development until *after* the KS was over. 

 

EDIT: Membrane wasn't possible because of manufacturer minimum units requirement (?).

Useful article.

 

If tube paints are getting runny, membrane permeability is too high and fluid paints will get much more runny. If closing the palette when the outside temp is low causes problems with increased humidity, raising the outdoor temp will increase indoor humidity, not decrease it (assuming a constant indoor temp), even if the outdoor relative humidity drops. If I had any previous questions, I think they're answered.

 

I might pick up some synthetic chamois, though.

Grump just puts a coupla pennies in his, and he doesn't seem to get mold.

 

I use a porcelain pallet, not as big a fan of the wet pallet as Grump
