Each tree's inherent beauty, shown in the grain lines, knots, and varying wood tones, combines with handcrafting each pochade box to create an item that is uniquely yours.
Measuring 6"x8"x1.25" the smallest model (item #00703) is ultra lightweight at 1.35 lbs, with palette included.
Made using Baltic Birch wood, hand-sanded and finished with New Wave® proprietary wood finish for maximum durability. The finish is non-porous, dense, and resistant to water as well as standard artist solvents and mediums. In addition, the finish is crack proof, chip proof, and non-yellowing. Stainless steel and aluminum accents provide strength where needed most. All hardware is non-corrosive.
Strong rare earth magnets are used for the closure, panel/canvas holder, removable side wall for palette cleaning/replacement, and accessory side tray attachment. Sturdy 180° range of motion to position the pochade box as vertical or horizontal as you would like. Horizontal set up is perfect for watercolor painting.
A high density plastic palette is included. Oil paints can be removed with solvents, and dry acrylic paint peels off. Paint dabs can be stored on the palette when the lid is closed due to a recessed palette and recessed lid.
Anywhere™ Pochade Boxes are compatible with universal 1/4" tripod mounts. Smooth exterior free of protruding wood or metal components allows for quick and easy storage in any pack.
