Okay...spent a great deal of the day looking for lid supports to build my small cigar box pochade box.

I intend to build several, give some away as gifts too. Oh well, but...found this site, and what a great looking box. I think I'll eventually buy one of these too!

Larry, your link is broken :D probably because it has been 4 and a half years. But... does anybody have one of these the look pretty cool but probably only for traveling. What do you think? :wave: James

James, I use one for oils en plein air; I haven't ventured out with acrylics yet. I use this one:

www.pleinairsolutions.com

Convenitently, the Masterson handy-palette sets right into this one!

You can do a search for "pochade" in the Plein Air forum and you'll see lots of possibilities. Guerrilla Painter, a pochade box manufacturer, even has their own sub-forum there on the WC Plein Air site.

Larry, I have some beautiful wood cigar boxes and don't know what to do with them. Can you post a picture of your cigar box porchade box? I would really like to see what it looks like. Thanks.

Jo,

Here's an article that will teach you how to convert your cigar box to pochade box. http://www.wetcanvas.com/Articles2/15023/380/

Romell,

Thanks so much for the link. Great pictures, and this looks quite simple and easy.

Actually, you can use almost any box with a deep lid. You can use a kids lunch box if you want. You just need something to hold the paint and brushes, then water or mineral spirits, and if you use oils a way to keep the canvas from bumping and smearing the paint. If you have access to a table saw you can make your own like I did.

I show the back of my box, so you can see how deep the lid is, it will hold 3 wet paintings, and the block of wood that holds the lid at the angle I want while painting.
