Hi
I have made a box out of door skin(interior door material from a lumberyard) the edges of the box out of 1/2 x 1/2" strips of cedar,
the interior dimensions are the size of a piece of Canson and have used duct tape across bottom as hinge, the door skin doubles as my drawing board I have used mine for years its been across Canada and through Europe it also protects my finished work.
regards
Dan

My honey and I just purchased a camper and I would like to take my pastels and paper (Canson, and suede matboard) along for weekends of painting fun!! What do you use to transport your paper so it doesn't get creased? or bent??? Do any of you camp? or travel far with your paper????

Thanks for your help!!!

We are going camping next weekend...weather permitting. It's supposed to be 70 here this weekend...but knowing Wisconsin it could be snowing!!! I am going to go and look for the wood this weekend...love your idea about the duck tape!! I use it for EVERYTHING!! (sorry for the spelling..think it's supposed to be duct tape...)

HAPPY SPRING!!
