|Caran d'Ache Neocolor II watercolor crayons|
|Jo Reimer's traveling sketch kit|
The case is a tri-fold cosmetic case, found at AAA a few years ago. I've seen similar ones at the drugstore. Here's what's in it...
- my small Moleskine journal, a tiny watercolor paintbox made from a mint tin, and a waterbrush. These live in my handbag at home, every day.
- Winsor Newton travel palette with 12 basic colors.
- a second waterbrush
- 4 other rather small brushes with shortened handles,
- a tiny spray bottle for water,
- a tiny bottle of Indian Red ink and a dip pen for drawing,
- several half-sticks of Caran d'Ache crayons in a little plastic bag,
- my collage/watercolor journal and a few extra bits of watercolor paper,
- 2 UHU gluesticks and a small jar of acrylic medium with a spreader,
- small children's scissors,
- pens and pencils,including a couple of colored pencils
- eraser and tiny pencil sharpener,
- a tiny sea sponge,
- several paper and plastic alphabet stencils,
- a film container for paper clips and brads with masking tape wrapped around the outside,
- a roll of clear packing tape that tears easily to use for magazine transfers.
- small pad of watercolor postcards
- a 2" S-hook, a carabiner and a large safety pen
|Tri-fold kit with left compartment folded inward|
|Kit opened all the way|
On the airplane I position the S-hook or the safety pin somewhere in front of me on the airplane, hook the carbineer to the handle of my travel kit, and hang from the S-hook so my equipment is handy as I work.
Between trips this kit lives in my car where I also keep a spare, larger sketchbook.
What do you pack? What sort of packing case do you use?
