We work with standard plastic Full Pans. These are durable and lightweight as well, and fit into most commercial travel watercolor boxes.
Our Full Pans measure: 3cm x 1.9cm x 1cm
Full Pans can be thought of as the portable equivalent to a tube of watercolor paint. They are twice the size of a Half-Pan and hold a whole lot of color. This size is a great choice for artists who enjoy working large. Not only does this size pan hold more paint, it also has a greater surface area which can accommodate much larger brushes. This size is also a wonderful way to carry your favorite colors. If you have used up a Half-Pan and wish to replenish a palette staple, a Full Pan can be a nice next-step. Palettes of Full Pans also make excellent flexible studio palettes; they are large enough to be used in a home studio or table-top set-up while allowing you to close up the set and take it on the road.
