The French Insider Folding Palette:

At last a folding palette that fits INSIDE YOUR FRENCH EASEL !!

Bring your French easel into the 21st century with our new FRENCH INSIDER FOLDING PALETTE. Unlike other French easel accessories, OUR folding palette fits INSIDE your French easel!

Our new palette is constructed of sturdy PVC sheet (not wood-that can warp or crack) and sturdy metal piano hinges. This innovative design gives the modern day painter 250 sq. inches of palette surface. That's plenty of area for mixing larger quantities of paint for larger paintings. The 2 side panels fold over the large center panel and makes transporting a wet palette easy.

The mixing surface is a neutral gray and the slide out shelf has it’s own gray value scale 0-10.

The surface allows for easie palette clean up - simply scrape wet paint from mixing areas with a palette knife, then finish cleaning area with a paper towel moistened with turps.

Weighs only 2 lbs. 7 oz. -- Closed palette dimensions: 16 x 10.75 x 1.5

The slide out shelf has a 3” hole for your small turps jar and brush holes on both sides (left or right hand).

The FRENCH INSIDER comes equipped with its own turps container. Container is made of lightweight PPG plastic (not glass). Comes with a butyl rubber gasket and locking lid. Container drops into a 3” hole in the slide out shelf. No more hanging/swinging turps containers! It holds 7 oz. of turps and weighs 4 oz.

Our FRENCH INSIDER fits inside the drawer of most full size French easels such as Jullian, Mabef, and others.
