It’s summer, temperatures are rising year after year, and paint dries away from you faster than you can get it on the model. Time for a wet palette. Green Stuff World has a particularly inexpensive model on offer, but do you have to sacrifice quality for that? I answer that question in this review of Green Stuff World’s wet palette.

Please note: In the past, there have been some (justified) shitstorms around Green Stuff World. For example, they recently used a paint job for product packaging without the approval of the artist. Since I try to maintain an unbiased and journalistic approach, I feel the need to point this out, but ultimately leave it up to you to judge.

Green Stuff World Wet Palette review

As someone who didn’t use wet palette for years and then switched over, I can tell you: A wet palette is an invaluable hobby tool. Even if you’re not using advanced painting techniques like wet blending or glazing, a wet palette will prevent your paint from drying, which keeps your paint fresh and workable even in Summer, and helps you save paint. More reasons to use a wet palette in this post.

Green Stuff World vs Redgrass Creative Painter / Painter lite comparison
Green Stuff World vs Redgrass Creative Painter / Painter lite comparison

Some of the most popular wet palettes are Redgrass Creative’s Everlasting Wet Palettes, whose original version I reviewed here and the updated V2 version here. The design of Green Stuff World’s wet palette is clearly inspired by Redgrass Creative. The regular version is minimally smaller than the Painter / Painter lite size of the Everlasting Wet Palette, but otherwise very similar. I like that Green Stuff World’s version has a recess for the elastic band, as well as ergonomic grip recesses to open the palette. Unfortunately, you have to do without a rubber seal, but the palette still closes well, as long as you keep the bottom part clean. The green and gray design is a matter of taste. I would have liked a more neutral color scheme better.

The fit of the foam pad could be slightly better

The two foam pads included are of good quality and are slightly thicker than the foam pad in The Army Painter’s Wet Palette (which I reviewed here), but the fit could be a bit better. The foam has an antibacterial treatment to prevent mould and impurities. The hyropaper also works perfectly well. It can’t quite keep up with Redgrass Creative’s reusable membranes, but you can get it in very inexpensive 50 paper packs.
