The pan format protects the colors, keeping them separate and clean in the studio and when transporting them. FREE Tools and Storage Jar. Palette Trays are also available. Each color is loaded with the finest quality artists’ pigments for the most concentrated colors possible.
You can get a very nice finish if you sand, stain or varnish them or you can just leave them as they are for the natural look. If you do decide to decorate them yourself, be careful not to sand off the design or fill the lid grooves with varnish (or the lid won't slide any more).
