One of the challenges of watercolor is color mixing. It’s a known fact that it is not always easy and the process of mixing can be tricky and frustrating at times – especially when all we get is a muddy-looking mix! But there’s no denying that this so called challenge is one of the medium’s charm and appeal and we can’t get enough of those vibrant, transparent mix.
importance of mixing palette
The mixing palette is an unsung hero of watercolor painting for the following reasons;
- This is the first contact of water and paint together.
- It’s where you’ll mix your color choices that you will later on paint on your paper.
- This is where you’ll estimate the consistency of your paints.
- Lastly, good watercolor palette can help you achieve luminous mix and avoid watercolor mud!
I have hundreds of reasons why I love using ceramic palette but here are some that will surely win your heart as well;
- Ceramic palette improves the performance of your paints. Because of its coating, you won’t see water beading on it-I hate it when I can’t mix my colors properly because of the beading. It helps a lot that on porcelain, pigments stick together resulting in a beautiful mix of vibrant color.
- Ceramic palettes are very sturdy and designed for years of consistent use.
- In case you are still not convinced about ceramic. Cleaning this kind of palette is much easier too. And best of all, it doesn’t stain!
There’s no going back once you try painting with a ceramic palette.

about the collaboration
A unique collection of handmade ceramic palettes made with an exquisite white porcelain clay with plant and birds motifs, perfect for all your watercolor painting needs.
This handmade ceramic palette collection is a collaboration between ceramic artist, Jaspreet and watercolor artist and author, Jovy Merryl. The meeting of two artistic minds has resulted in the creation of these unique and beautiful palettes which are not just a collector’s dream but are also functional.
The design, created by Jaspreet, is inspired by Jovy’s paintings where she captures nature and its elements in a mesmerising blend of colours and strokes. While the functional aspects of the palettes have been incorporated based on Jovy Merryl’s vast experience in painting with watercolor.
The collection is made of porcelain clay with a natural white color which has been fired twice with maximum temperature reaching 1200 celsius. The final layer of transparent glaze ensures that the surface is waterproof (it is in fact food safe) and perfect for you to mix and blend your colors to create your own masterpiece.
