Professional Series Oil & Acrylic Easel
Holds Large Canvases Securely
This new ‘Professional Series’ oil or acrylic painting easel is designed for painters who paint larger than 16×12, yet it will still hold a 6×8 when needed. The innovative panel holder is a structural aluminum channel with ABS brackets. It will hold panels or stretched canvas up to 22” vertically. It mounts on the SLIK U8000 Tripod with a quick disconnect shoe (included). We paired the panel holder with this medium duty tripod for its wide stance with increased stability.
The panel holder doubles as a single wet painting carrier when you are finished. Simply unlatch the quick disconnect shoe from the tripod mount. The holder brackets remain securely in place, allowing you to carry a wet painting with one hand.
Maximum height to top of panel or canvas is approximate 72”. Tripod easily adjusts for a sitting painter. The weight of the panel holder is 1lbs. 3oz.
Perfect for traditional oil painting, water-soluble oils or acrylic painting.
Your Studio At Your Finger Tips
The ‘Professional Series’ oil or water-based painting palette’s working surface (9”x18.5”) is a layer of clear PETG material (not acrylic). This surface resists scratching and cleans up easily with a paper towel moistened with turps. The neutral grey background of the palette and built in value scale make mixing colors easier.
Pro Series Glass Option
Upgrade to an 1/8″ tempered glass working surface. It’s suitable for plein air painting, and provides super easy clean-up ( Just like a studio palette). Although this glass palette weighs and extra 1# 3oz, it has been well received by several professionals: “The ease of mixing and easy cleanup make this a no-brainer”.
Innovative Design Features
With either standard or the glass option, the palette features 2 slide out shelves. One has a 3” hole for a turps jar and 10 brush holes of assorted sizes. A handy place for a roll of towels, viewfinder, thumbnail sketch, palette knife, etc. We didn’t compromise on strength when designing for lightness. The palette frame and shelves are constructed from sturdy ABS. The cover is 1/4” thick grey PVC. Aluminum plates increase stability when palette is mounted on SLIK U8000 tripod.
The palette cover also doubles as a palette ‘shade’. It is held in a vertical position by a retractable bungee cord and works with any tripod. Palette/shelves/cover weigh only 3lbs. 12 oz. Height of palette mounted on tripod is 35”.
The turps jar is made of lightweight, PPG impact resistant plastic and comes equipped with a butyl rubber gasket and a locking lid. The jar fits neatly into the slide out shelf hole for easy access (left or right) and holds 7 oz. No more hanging/swinging turps containers!!! Turps container weighs 4oz.
