My Tiny Bijou Box
My new Bijou Box is definitely cute! It's about 3" x 2.25" x .75". Eight Winsor & Newton Artist's half-pans and a travel brush come with the set, and there's room for four more half-pans while still leaving room for the brush.
It was a bargain at $35, including shipping. The half-pans alone would cost over $50 through an online discount shop. Though I have more than enough small travel palettes, I just had to have this one! I knew it would be small, but I didn't realize how tiny it actually is. Cute-cute-cute!
Since I already have a small palette with W&N Artist's Colors, I've filled this one with MaimeriBlu primary and secondary, pure-pigment colors along with Raw Sienna. With room for four additional half-pans, more colors can be added later.
It's fun to play with tools, but they are more effective when used rather than admired. Time to return to practicing. Oh, did I mention that my tiny Bijou Box is really cute?
