Remember in this entry, I was trying to figure out which of the three spool sizes to use, and I figured that it would probably depend on which ones were easiest to store?
I went to the Container Store, and craft stores, and art supplies stores – and I finally found my solution.
It’s a pastels box. The fact that they look like little artist’s paint sticks, makes me very happy.
The little compartments keep them from shifting around, which would rub and damage the silk. Each tray holds 44 tubes, and there are 3 trays – so 132 colors in all. I think it ought to be enough!
The box, closed.
I also located something to carry around a “working palette” of a few spools – these are for pastels too.
I had to chop up the foam a little… the spools are a TINY bit too long to go in crossways (the way the pastels fit) so they have to go in on a slant.
