Mini Empty Metal Tin Box for DIY Watercolor Pans Travel Palette Container
Small mini pocket size blank magnetic tin box measures about 45x60x15mm (approx 1.75" x 2.25" and 1/2" thick). See second picture for size reference in comparison to Altoids tins - this is slightly larger than the "smalls" mint tins, but much smaller than the normal Altoids tins. It has a connected, hinged lid, with a small bump to allow the lid to securely shut.
Empty tins can be used for storing your handmade paints or tube-filled empty watercolor pans. Please note that, like any metal tins such as Altoids containers, they are not rust-proof. It is ideal to keep these containers as dry as possible, and not to be used as a mixing well. When using any tins for watercolor paint storage, mixing colors on paper is suggested. I typically cut a piece of watercolor paper to fit into the inside of the lid for use as a color chart. I have used the inner lid as a mixing area as well, but it should be wiped dry after painting to reduce rust build up over time.
