Heilman Medium Original Pastel Box
This is a great entry level box to corral all of those “boxes and collections” of pastels we have accumulated in our quest for the “perfect palette of colors”. Dividers are removable. It holds a generous supply of pastels and can travel from studio to workshop and out into the field “en-plein air”. It weighs about 12 lbs filled and can be modified to fit the specific needs of any artist.
Sometimes used filled on one side for pastels, the other to hold paper, it is easily slipped into backpack or carry case. Because it opens like a book, it’s brass side latches turn it into a solid unit that can sit anywhere. A tripod coupler insert underneath takes any standard tripod and the box sits centered on the tripod for a low gravity position which helps stabilize in windy conditions.
The box is fitted for the use of the Heilman Easel and together they make an excellent working setup.
Includes a shoulder strap, and fitted with 2 lockable latches.
