Strong ConstructionThe pastel boxes are built with strong finger joint construction using, poplar, maple, and Baltic birch components.  A beautiful cherry stain and lacquer finish transform these painting tools into pieces you will treasure.

Ergonomic Star Knobs 

All adjustments of the panel holders and lid angle arm are made with easy to adjust plastic star knobs. Far superior to the common wing nuts found in many plein air easels the star knobs are easy to grip and result in much tighter holding power.

Lid Adjustment ArmThe simplicity of the lid adjustment arm is what makes it so effective. The star knobs make adjustments easy and the lid can be held at any angle. The arm is designed in such a way that the pastel box can be used on a flat surface as a table easel. Rubber bumpers are on the bottom of the box just for this purpose. In fact the Pastel box is the perfect small easel for studio use as well as plein air.

Removable Foam Inserts

The pastel box includes four removable foam inserts to keep your valuable pastels cushioned and save during transport. The inserts can be removed and cleaned by tapping out the residual pastel dust. This also allows the interior of the pastel box to be cleaned as well.

Panel Holders

The panel holders are designed for ease of use and versatility. 1/8″ – 1/4″ pastel panels fit perfectly in the panel holders. Pastel paper taped to standard 1/4″ foam core is also ideal.Two star knobs in the rear of the lid adjust the height of your canvas.The maximum panel height is 17″ inches.

Accessory Tray 

The included accessory tray is a pleasure to use. It stows away perfectly on the back of the lid with the help of two magnets. During painting it slips over the right side of the pastel box. There are indents for several pastel pencils or brushes and a flat area for other pastel accessories.

Tripod Mounting Plate

A critical piece of the pastel box is the mounting plate. A ¼” thick piece of aluminum 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” accomplishes this beautifully, with a standard ¼ x 20 threaded hole as the fastening point. The plate is attached to the frame of the box with three stout screws. There is a large area for the ball head quick release plate to grab onto and hold the box firmly in place on the tripod.
