Channeling McGyver’s Artistic Side

I had so much fun constructing the pastel trays several weeks ago, I decided to play again and made a table easel. I made this from one sheet of foam core board, Liquid Nails, white duct tape and clear contact paper, much like McGyver might do!

I prefer to sit to paint and didn’t like my standard wood table easel. This new one is very sturdy even though its as light as a feather. I put the clear contact paper on the flat area.IMG_3881


As you can see in the photos, I have put a slim piece of foam core board underneath the painted panel to lift it up off the ledge just a bit. This might be helpful when painting the bottom edge.
