This Package is lightweight, portable and assembles in minutes! Imagine where you can go...
For the watercolorist we offer the Advanced Series Package which features our exclusive watercolor palette shelf with cover. Unlike other lightweight plastic palettes on the market that quickly become brittle with use, our Advanced Series Watercolor palette is made of heavy-duty ABS thermoformed material (not brittle styrene plastic). The palette comes with a grey 3mm PVC cover for easy transport to and from the field.
This design offers convenient and thoughtful features such as a retractable 8-hole brush holder sized to hold the most popular watercolor brushes. Included are a built-in water pail hook, a collapsible water pot and watercolor palette shelf with cover. When not being used outdoors it converts to a table easel by removing the quick release plate and then screwing in the included table leg, held by a magnetic catch on the back. The easel connects easily to a standard camera mount tripod using a quick release. The palette shelf with cover simply slips onto the legs of our tripod.
The Advanced Watercolor Series is designed to take your watercolor studio into the field — everything is designed to fit compactly within the carry-all bag in the overhead compartment on the airplane. Say bye-bye to those extra baggage fees and hello to Happy Painting.

Unpack your gear.
Start with the tripod
Using the fliplocks extend the legs of the tripod to your desired height
Once extended lock the legs into place with the fliplocks
Crank the center column up to the desired height. Turn the center locking collar to a snug position to hold the column in place
Next, take the black easel and look on the back for the quick release plate that is already screwed into the square block (don't unscrew or remove this plate)
Then, look at the top of the tripod and locate the pan head that this plate fits into
Pull down the grey lever on the left side of this pan head and insert the quick release plate
Push the lever back up into place to secure the easel to the tripod
Next, take the palette and slip it onto the legs of the tripod
Remove the grey palette cover, flip it over and slide it underneath the palette
Hang the waterpot in the hole at the back of the palette on the built in hooks
Add your canvas, brushes and paints and ENJOY!
NOTE: To use the easel on a tabletop surface:
Remove the easel from the tripod.
Unscrew the quick release plate on the back of the easel and put it into the pan head of the tripod for safe keeping.
Detach the table leg from the magnet on the back of the easel. (The table leg looks like a long screw with a black cap on the end.)
Screw the table leg into the block on the back of the easel.
