Does anyone know where a wooden box for about forty oil pastels can be obtained from? Would even like the cardboard ones with dividers that come with the student grade pastels.

Pastel boxes in art stores are too big with drawers etc. Not too convenient for outdoor sketching.

I like the look of the one that comes with a set of forty oil pastels by Holbein. Unfortunately it seems to come with pastels in it.

Thanks for any ideas.

You can always make one from a cigar box. Or from scratch. It's not hard to do, just gotta be creative.

Here is a link to a box I made for oil pastels.
Maybe it will help.
