I own several different plein air pochades and use each for different situations. I wanted to use one of my smallest, the EasyL ProChade for pastels occasionally, so found a way to use it. Because of the interior structure of the ProChade, it is difficult to be able to keep the pastels inside when closed, so I needed portable boxes that would sit nicely when the easel is open.
I had this tin that would work nicely, so I added some foam and went to work deciding on how to pick which ones from this large pile - would fit in this small tin! :
I already had a small NuPastel box that I had filled with a variety of hard pastel brands and put the larger soft pastels into the new tin - seems perfect!!
Here they are closed up:
