Hi all:

I'm wondering is anyone knows where online I can find some of these?

They are rigid foam and I need 3 more to fill a small plastic container so I can take some of my pastels with me outside.

Any suggestions are appreciated. :-)

Those are why to keep all set boxes from any pastels sets you buy. The slotted foam pieces are something I've never seen by themselves, especially rigid foam like that. Looks like those came out of a set.

Jerry's Artarama has small slotted foam boxes that hold 6-10 pastls of different brands. I don't think it's the same kind of foam but the foam in those boxes might work for lining your plastic box. Check the dimensions on Pastel Pods there.

Thanks for the tip, Robert. And yes, those ones I have did come with some pastels I'd ordered months ago. I did save these and now I'm looking for a few more (empty). :-) I'll check Pastel Pods. Thanks!

Thanks to the tip from Robert, I found/ordered/received Pastel Pods from Jerry's today. They are perfect! I measured the W&N sticks and found that the Sennelier pods were a perfect fit. I have them in a small plastic box from

I am able to fit 6 pods in with 6 sticks in each pod. If I want to add more, the web site has bigger plastic boxes.
