Oil & Acrylic Easel -En Plein Air Pro Advanced Series Oil & Acrylic Easel offers a panel holder which holds up to 16" x 12" or down to 6" x 8" panels or stretched canvas. Easel and adjustable panel holder are made of tough ABS material. The vertical mounting design eliminates the "top-heavy rocking" that can occur in other tripod/pochade box set-ups. Max height to center of panel or canvas = 58". Tripod easily adjusts for a sitting painter. The new SLIK U8000 Tripod is a full-size medium duty (weight 3.3 lbs.) with a wide stance for increased stability in the field. The easel and panel holder attaches easily with a "quick-disconnect mount." It also comes with a screw-in leg to convert to a table easel. This is handy in a motel room where space limits use of a tripod.
The Advanced Series Oil and Acrylic Palette frame constructed of tough thermoformed 1/4" ABS material and features a 6 hole brush holder. Aluminum Plates on the tripod leg attachments increase stability. The working surface is a layer of clear PETG (not acrylic). Surface resists scratching and cleans up with a paper towel moistened with turps. Underneath the PETG is a built in value scale. Neutral gray working surface is 9-3/4" x 15-/1/4". Max height to top of palette = 37".
The palette cover has a slide-out shelf made of 6 mm grey PVC. It is the perfect place to lay your palette knife or your thumbnail sketch. This shelf will fit on either side of palette and has extra holes for brushes. Included is a "clothespin" clamp to be placed on tripod leg-opposite of the sliding shelf. The cover slides underneath the palette and has a 3" hole to accept the turps jar. Turps jar is made of lightweight PPG plastic (not glass). Comes equipped with a butyl rubber gasket and a locking lid. The jar drops into the palette cover hole for easy access and holds 7 oz. No more hanging /swinging turps containers. The easel, panel holder, palette, turps jar, slide out shelf and SLIK 8000 tripod all fit neatly inside the included "Advanced Series" Carry-All Bag. The bag, made of heavy-duty Cordura, with plenty of room for paints, brushes and more measures 12"H x 27"W x 12"D. The total weight of easel, palette and tripod is a super light 8 lbs.-5 oz. The new "Advanced Series' Oil and Acrylic Palette" system will meet the needs of the most adventurous painter.
