Re: Where to find the WHITE TOP PART of easel

If you have some basic woodworking tools and skill you can make something better than that for a fraction of the price.

If you don't have the tools or the ability, for the $99 price of the one in the link which is made of plastic You could probably have one made for you out of birch or oak plywood at a small cabinet shop, which in my view would be substantially better than plastic.

Here are two examples of DIY mast style panel holders from WC:

If you use both stretched canvas and rigid panels you could make cross pieces that better fit the two different thicknesses, or have one edge fit the canvas stretchers and the other edge with a groove for panels, just rotate them as needed.

Thanks a bunch for all the info.

And yes I have the stuff to make one. Just trying to find pics or plans.. What you put up on here and other links will suffice.

Thanks again
Johnnie

Re: Where to find the WHITE TOP PART of easel

Here's what I have come to use after over 25 years of painting. It fits on a standard thread camera tripod.

The advantage is that, as the name "The Twister" implies, one can twist, turn and tilt the painting-in-progress for the maximum desired watercolor effects while the painting is still wet and without detaching it from the holder.

It's collapsible and portable for working outdoors and/or able to be left on a tripod for studio work.

Check Jim Kosvanec's website for more details: http://www.kosvanec.com/twisterpage.html



Hope this helps.

Sling paint,
Virgil
