Ah, Derwent-compromise- got it.  I like the Derwents just fine. 

BTW, Maybe 4x6" or 5x7" mylar palettes. I cut the mylar to fit inside the lid of the tin box (if I keep the box), and also have a cut-to-fit piece of w/c paper that shows both dry and wet marks of each color. That fits in the lid also.  
You can wash the mylar off and have it be "sort of" clean for the next use.

Derwent was our compromise- sorry.   We lean toward a drier drawing/painting given that we are working out on the museum floor.  Some day I'd like to do a "real" watercolor for medical illustration workshop but it will have to wait until there is a classroom with a sink.  I love the idea of the mylar palette.  Having two ends to the pencil would also be an interesting solution, a wet end and a dry end.
