Alright, alright… time to dust off this old blog and get some updates rollin in.
I just recently bought a Plein Air Pochade box from a gentleman in Missoula, MT that hand builds painting boxes. The box will hold 2 to 4 wet panels (depending on thickness of panels) in the lid portion and can hold an 18 x INFINITY (or at least pretty wide) on the main panel holder.
I decided to prepare a bunch of panels so that I have a stock pile of them for whenever I need one. Mostly I decided to do this because I have a can of Gamblin Oil Ground that I need to use up and painting a ground with an oil based paint takes a LONG time to dry.
ANYWAYS… After starting to prime some of these panels I ran out of drying space so I decided to build a drying rack!
I made this with two old window shutters, a few pieces of spare wood and the metal strips from a stack of old file folders. Total cost: $3. Works like a charm!
Soon enough these blank panels will be filling up with painting and I plan on posting most of them here… so… stick around!
