Re: Pastel Storage - Beautiful, but practical

The mirror in the lid would be handy for looking at the art backwards while looking on it. I'm not sure what machinists use safety mirrors for, but that's an interesting little perk. Not that I'd be shaving in front of my pastels. I'd rather look my best before saying hello to all the little darlings...

Re: Pastel Storage - Beautiful, but practical

Maybe it's like the "safety mirrors" we have in the office. You know the ones. You mount them to your PC so you can see if your Boss is looking over your shoulder while you surf the web.

That chest was a seasonal item (Christmas) at Lowe's 2 years ago. Less than $100

Re: Pastel Storage - Beautiful, but practical

They are 9"Wx11"Lx1.5" deep. The large drawers I'm also going to use mainly for soft pastels. They are 9"Wx23"Lx2.25" deep.

David, are these the inside measurements? If so a complete set of PanPastels would fit into the six small drawers--3 columns by 5 rows, staggered, four pans high (without the tool bottom). Tint+Pure Hue+Tone+Extra Dark. That's 15 colors per drawer x 6 = 90.
