    Does this work with Corel Painter essentials 6? I can’t really find tutorials or anything to help me bring extra colors into this specific program online, and would love to have Bob Ross’s colors in my palette.

      Thanks for getting in touch! The Mystic Mountain palette is currently only available for Painter itself. We appreciate the suggestion however, and we have notified the Painter team that there are Essentials users looking for it as well.

        Hi Adam,
        I can’t seem to find the palette in the get more menu of Painter Essentials 6. Can you be more specific on how to get it? Is importing not available in Essentials 6?
        Thank you

          Hello BayBay,

          Sorry for the delay on this one! We fired up a couple copies of Painter Essentials and Painter, and it looks like we got a wire crossed. The Mystic Mountain palette is currently only available for Painter itself. We have notified the Painter team that there are Essentials users looking for it as well, but we don’t have anything new to announce there just yet.

            Adam, I realize this is a year after the fact but just for your enlightenment, the reason some of the people are trying to get this to work with or confused that it doesn’t work with Painter Essentials 6 is because it was sold on Humble Bundle as a package. Then Karen did the tutorial in Painter 2018, NOT Painter Essentials 6. There is no way to do in PE6 what Karen did in Painter as far as importing the palette image.

    HOW did you add the Bob Ross color pallet to the Mixer pad? When I went to Change Mixer Background I got a block of colors to chose from. Noting that would lead me to the drive where the Mystic Mountain Color set was with the Bob-ross pallet.prn sample was.

    So HOW is that color pallet added?
