Excellent for storing watercolours

I bought this tin to make a travel pack for my existing half pan watercolours and it works wonderfully, perfect size for 6 half pans!

My travel tin

I had some tube paints that I wanted to put in half pans to dry out but needed something to store them in and to make them easy for travel (outdoor painting is great therapy). When I ordered my primary palette from the watercolour factory I saw they sold the tins seperate so I order one and my extra half pans are all kept together so when I want to paint away from home I can just throw them in my bag. Amazing!!!!

Love these tins

Great quality and size ! Can’t wait to fill them

Small half pan

I like it a lot, its super cute and perfect for travel. My only issue is that even without moving it around the pans (maybe because they are so full, which isn't a bad thing) stick to the lid and leave there pigment and colour that can still be used. Take that into account and maybe use the tin once you've used the colours a bit and they aren't as full. Apart from that it's perfect!
