Paradise 30 color pallet question

Post by vampkat on Thu Jun 17, 2010 8:34 pm

So I'm trying to try out different paints. I got the 16 color snazzaroo pallet, and I'm looking at the paradise 30 color pallet..but it doesn't say anywhere I can find how much is in each of the paints. Are they the same size as the snazzaroo pallets?

HI,
I can't tell you if they are the same size, but they call that paradise 30 'sampler' for a reason. They are very small, maybe less then 18 mls.
I'll have a look on the Mehron site and see if I can get an exact amount for you.
Ok nope. Strange they don't seem to sell refills for them either.

Yeah, that's why I asked...I couldn't find that information ANYWHERE. I know they will be small, but are they smaller then the snazzaroo pallets...larger...I just want to know what I'm getting before I decide if I want to buy that or some of the mid-sized pallets that have 7g sizes.

I found this on siilly farm:

Refill Pack: The Paradise refill pack is a 2 pack of refill size paints for the Paradise palettes. The refills are .25oz of paint and are about the size of a quarter. They will each paint approximately 25-60 designs..

Yes Wolverine is right. I have two of those palettes one of which I made into a whole pallete of split cakes. It is a good place to start and will give you a great sampling of the Paradise line. You can also pop out the extra white and blacks and put in the Glimmer sized pots of glitter. It is perfect for doing small parties or just cheek art. I have had mine for over a year and I use it more than occassionally and have yet to replace any of the paints!

i think they are appox 10 grams or around the same amount that is in an arty cake if that gives you an idea. not a ton of paint, but def a good way to sample all the colors and either buy the refills or make you a split cake pallette like alicia did.

alicia, can you post that pic again

I know a lot of painters who work out of this palette. When on the job you don't really need as much paint as most painters carry. I see this as a great palette for doing private parties like birthdays. I have several clown friends who have me get refills for them.

The cakes are the size of a large eyeshadow cake - 7 grams. They do come in refills two to a pack. The big palettes are also great.

Where do you get the refills? Do you carry them Metina? Great idea to make split cakes with some.

I have considered carrying them, but don't really see much demand for them. Who out there actually continues to use the small palettes after they try all they paint?

It's good if you are trying out the colors, after that, really... the only real use is for cheek art

I have this pallet and love it!! I have painted many gigs with it and have not went through any of the colors yet. I have bought the large size now, and have been making split cakes and I can cut a chunk to refill the small pots from them. Very hand way to try all the colors!!

This truly is just a sampler, you will work through every color very quickly and having to constantly re-order those little cups will probably cost you even more than purchasing the larger sizes in the first place. It's a great way to sample the colors though, think free sample at your local makeup counter.

Have a question about the 30 sampler pallet? If I bought the 40 gram pots would I be able to stick them on the other side of the pallet case so when I open the case flat, I have the smaller pots on one side and the larger pots on the other? Has anyone tried this? I was just wondering because I figure it would save space by just opening it and laying it flat and have all of my paints layed out for me.

Good question - I didn't mind the smell at all of the Paradise black so was planning on getting the larger kit with the pots (12 colors). But of course am unsure what colors I'll like use. Since I'm still "practicing" this seems an optimum solution and can take me into doing private parties. Then after time goes on I can graduate to the 12 color palette - but keep this for making my own split cakes. I have gotten a lot of uses out the snaz little 8 color kit from Michaels and I think those are just 2 ml? I could be wrong about that. For black and white of course I have the larger pots. What glimmer pots are mentioned above? A Mehron product?

Anyone know the answer to this? I am guessing that you can't, but if anyone knows for sure. I wanted to try the same thing.

You can opened up the case and while it is laying flat, stick the pots on the other side, but you can not store them in the case when it's closed along with the sampler paints still inside. Even if you take everything out, I tried with my 45gm Wolfe & no lids, the case doesn't stay closed...don't have any 40gm to test for you. So in terms of table set-up, yes less space, but for transport, you'd still need something else. Hope that helps.

I also thought this would be a great way to sample the colours, it is my little travel set for playdates (my daughters friends love to be painted) I can still do full faces and load sponges for them, and I bring it to gigs just in case Smile

So I only have a few Paradise in the regular sizes (smell doesn't bother me and I like the way it blends). Have considered a palette to try some other colors but would like to know how the tropical palette compares to the 30-sampler in terms of paint volume. Anybody know?

I love Paradise and am very experienced using it.

The 30 Palette has thirty 7 gram cakes and the Tropical Palette has eight 7 gram cakes. Each pro cake is 40 grams.

The 30 Palette of course lets you see most all the colors, the Tropical Palette (Cool is that color line.

Paradise colors can be broken down by color line. Basic, Pastel, Tropical, Nuance and Metallics. The colors in each line works with the other colors in that line. The various lines have been created with the color wheel in mind. Certainly the makeups cross color lines nicely, allowing you the artist to be creative and unique.

The Tropical colors are among the most popular of the lines.
The small palette is very nice, a sliver case with a nice size mirror and place for your brush. It does come with a small flat brush. A great size for parties and face art when body painting or doing extreme beauty makeup or for your own use.

You can't go wrong with the pro cakes maybe jump right to them with three or so select tropicals. Very popular are Amazon Green, Beach Berry, Lime, Wild Orchid and Lagoon Blue.

If you have some pro cakes - get a Mehron pro case and just add in some tropical colors.

I work out of either 2 or 4 cases, opened then in becomes one or two cases. These fit perfectly on my custom made stand. As for 45 gram Wolfe makeup as noted above they do fit in the cases w/o the lids. However they need to be pushed in the foam a bit to have the case shut perfectly each time. I like to re-pot any other brands into empty paradise containers as I prefer an upscale uniform look.

Prices here at the Face Paint Forum shop are the same as the store linked above in this thread.

I have the 30 color Paradise pallette and have gotten a lot of use from it. I have yet to run out of any color. I don't know about the 45gm Wolfe but all my other DFX, TAG, Mehron full size cakes fit in nicely.

Yes you can put the sampler 30 colors on one side and the 40 grams on the other side and my case closes, hope that helps.

I startedoff with two of the paradise pallettes (the 8 color ones) and I still love them. They're easy to take if I want and you can buy refills for them. I will admit that I don't use them as much as I did, but as I have run out of colors I have replaced them with the bigger sizes.

I got the tropical and the regular and they were I think $25 each at the time. I also highly recomend a DFX black and white. I love paradise, truly, it blends wonderfully, it lies nice on the skin, and I like the way it smells, but it's not the best for linework imo Smile
