Great New Product!

New Wave™ Artist Palettes

Centuries of painting have provided a great variety of shapes and designs for wooden artist palettes. In the past, artist palette designs provided balance through the grip, straining muscles and tendons in the arm, hand, thumb, and wrist (cantilever action). Some have suggested using a counterweight for balance, while using the forearm as a balance beam. This two anchor point approach (hand & forearm) adds weight with the addition of a counterweight, creates an apprehensive sense of balance, and still generates strain upon the artist’s muscles and tendons in the arm, hand, thumb, and wrist. None of these approaches provide a complete solution.

Unprecedented Comfort, Distinct Quality, Functional Designs
The artist palettes are organized into four unique groups based upon functionality. Handcrafted by a Mennonite wood shop in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania using hard white maple along with a durable, yet chic finish, these are the first artist palettes intended to fit the contour of your body, while providing functional design options for numerous styles of painting.
