The first time I set my eyes on Albrecht Easels was via a Twitter posting during the winter 2012. What attracted my liking to these palettes? Well, prior to my purchase of the Albrecht palette, I was using disposable paper, wood hand palette, and stationary glass palette. These palettes are great yet the disposable is not cost effective and is stationary like the glass. On the other hand the hand wood palette was great, yet clean up was tricky when my paint scraper would nick and ruin the finish while scraping dried up paint.
And YES! Like other painters, I sometimes leave the paint to dry on the palette and the clean up is rather cumbersome; however, after viewing Albrecht Easel’s I knew it was worth a buy because of the stainless steel construction means it will not nick or scratch as easy and clean up would be a lot easier. Now don’t be fooled these stainless steel palette are not heavy nor flimsy. They are perfectly balanced and ready to go.
So finally when the day arrived two months ago with my palettes from Albrecht Easels, I put them to the test. Using acrylic paint and most recently oil. The clean up is easier. I suggest when using acrylic paint that is dried up for some time to wet the dry paint on the palette and scrape away with scraper of choice. I was pleased to spend five minutes to get a perfectly clean palette, saving time, energy, and the end result was a palette as fresh as it came new. Now these palettes are exclusive to the maker, for I never seen such a palette in my career as an artist. I am pleased with the overall design and product finish, for now I have a set tool for my collection which will last a lifetime and perform great as needed.
