    The Masterson Sta-Wet Palette System uses specially formulated Sta-Wet Acrylic Paper, which you pre-moisten with water, and place on a Sta-Wet Sponge saturated with water. The paint will slowly absorb moisture from the sponge, through the paper, to maintain proper consistency of the paint. Your water-based paints will not dry out.

    Please visit our Tips & Techniques page.

    Absolutely! All Masterson Airtight Palettes can be used in combination with New Wave Artist Palettes for oil paint. New Wave Artist Palettes are designed to fit inside Masterson Palettes.

    If you would like to purchase a Masterson Palette that is not sold with the Masterson Sta-Wet Palette System, the Masterson Palette Seal (Blue Lid) is your go-to airtight option.

    How To Video: Opening and Closing the Masterson Lid

    Lay the tray on a flat surface and place the lid on the tray, matching up the corners. Using the palm of your hand, press down one corner of the lid then press down the corner diagonally opposite the corner you just snapped on. Press down the other two corners. If the corners do not line up: lift the lid, rotate the tray, then repeat the above steps. Once all four corners are connected to the tray, apply hand pressure around the edges of the lid until all four sides snap tightly to the tray. The lid will gain flexibility after multiple uses.
