Play with Cell Phone Accessories
We attached a ring accessory to the bottom of one of our palettes while taking it on a journey. Sometimes there aren't tables where you're going and an extra something to hold onto is great.
We took our palette through airport security and it held up well to a little jostling going through all the scans, however we do recognize the possibility that your pans could come loose from the magnetic surface as the pans are not permanently attached. Even fridge magnets get knocked off sometimes.
Solutions to Make Your Pans Stay Put
Once you decide how you want to arrange your colors/pans stick them down with adhesive dots. These keep the pans in place through extra bumpiness but allow for fairly easy removal if you want to rearrange later. You can also use double sided tape, just note that this may be more difficult to remove (you may need a palette knife to pry the pan up).
The Mixing Surface is Made of Glass!
The trade-off to having an amazing mixing surface that smears beautifully is that you must take a little extra care as rough handling or drops to the floor could cause it to crack. This is one of the reasons we do not recommend this product for children. If this happens to you, we advise that you get a replacement.
What is that Mini Spatula for?
We had to develop special packaging for our sticky paints as wrapping them in foil would create an unpackaging mess. In the video below, Regina demonstrates how to move pans around on the magnetic surface and loosen pans from the packaging sleeves. If you do not have a palette knife, the mini spatula works wonderfully for freeing the pans. You can also pull pans right off the packaging with your bare fingers! If you order empty pans for your own set of tube paints, simply squeeze some paint in the pans and smooth the paint out with the mini spatula. We hope to have solved the mystery of this very handy tool :).
