I have been experiencing watercolour palette envy and want to buy one or two new ones for portability.
But I am in a quandary not only which to buy, but how interchangeable the pans are in each.
Does anyone own or know whether Schmincke are interchangeable with Winsor & Newton. W&N do not sell empty pans and Schmincke is harder to find in the States. I do know that the Daniel Smith and Kremer pans are not interchangeable with W&N and won't fit even with fiddling.
Has anyone used the Bromley (UK only) "Compact" palette, either half or whole pans? Three people on line have this but each reports on their blogs a different view of what pans fit. Here's a link to the "plastic" palette.http://www.artsupplies.co.uk/item-new-c ... alette.htm
And lastly, a possible substitute for the high end Schmincke is this Manet palette that has mixed reviews, at Fine Arts, but no information on pan size.http://www.fineartstore.com/Catalog/tab ... 2CUnitCost
Any information or guidance much appreciated.
