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.

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

      The Smog Riders - Dimensions of Madness is a game of two to four players, in which each player controls a group of unique characters competing against each other for the control of steam technology and the secrets hidden in the Stygian Dimension.
      During the game, each player faces their characters against the characters of the other players, and the dangers that lurk in the enigmatic and dark Stygian Dimension.
        Compliance with the objectives of each mission, the search of powerful artifacts and eliminating rivals, will award points to each player to achieve victory over the rest.
        
         
        In the course of the game, the characters will have to prepare themselves, adapt and use the changing environment to overcome their enemies. 
        
          
        The Smog Raiders is a universe, it is a story, it is a continuity, it is a philosophy. We pretend that any user who acquires a game for the first time becomes an authentic Smog Raider.
      The user, once turned into a Smog Rider, will be able to walk through time, acquire expansions of its figures in individual packs in high quality resin, to assemble and paint. Blisters of three figures to expand their factions. Accessories such as doors, turrets, gameboard elements, minions, etc.
      Set of specific paints for the game, individual paints, brushes, primers, tools, step-by-step paint books, etc. All this to be able to customize their figures and apply more quality to the game

      It's 2 years in the making, and larger than Zelda: Link's Awakening, and still fits in your pocket!
       
      There's still a few Arduventure edition Arduboy pledges left... 
      (The game will work on the Standard edition, also. but the KS exclusive eition looks good... )

      Basically, someone's doing miniatures... which didn't really grab me, until I saw the one for Edgar Allen Poe.  I'm from Baltimore, so I have to get that one.  And there's an HP Lovecraft, and some other cool stuff.  What do others think?
