DAKOTA DELUXE TRAVELER ON SALE!
"The best plein air box for pastel artists - lightweight, tough, and holds lots of pastels!"

Italian craftsmen produce the exquisite Dakota Deluxe Traveler pastel carriers to our specifications. Boxes are constructed of oiled, stain resistant beech wood, utilize finger joined corners and are fitted with high quality hardware and a leather handle. The lightweight and durable boxes are a briefcase design that offers pastel storage on both sides. Swivel latches secure removable panels that hold the pastels in place. We use memory foam in the bottom of the box and attached to the panels to gently cushion the pastels. Memory foam provides the ultimate in protection for your fragile pastels.

The interior of each box is divided into sections measuring 10.25" x 3 1/4". The small box has 6 sections and the large box has 10 sections. Each section will easily hold 20 full size large sticks of pastel or many more half sticks. The Small box is a wonderful size if you want to be very compact and still have great carrying capacity, at least 120 full sticks and as many as 250 half sticks. The Large box can hold more than 200 full size pastel sticks. Both boxes offer quick and easy access - open up the box, remove the panels and you are ready to paint.

For compactness and portability the Small box is the way to go - put it in a backpack! If you need more pastels for a workshop, trip or just to keep your pastels organized in your studio, the Large box offers greater capacity along with the same ease of access.

Organized by Hue, Value and Intensity
Colors in Blue Earth Pastels are organized in the traditional nineteenth century manner: by hue, value and intensity. This sensible color wheel arrangement makes finding the right color with the correct value quick and easy.

Blue Earth Pastels (made in Blue Earth, Minnesota since 2012) are sold exclusively at Dakota Art. Rectangular in shape and a compact size, these pastels meet the color needs of the pastel artist in a new way. Colors in Blue Earth Pastels are organized in the traditional nineteenth century manner: by hue, value and intensity. This sensible color wheel arrangement makes finding the right color with the correct value quick and easy. Blue Earth has developed this thoughtful chromatic palette for the pastel painter, reminiscent of the oil painters' palette.

Organizing by hue, value and intensity allows a relatively small set to present the fullest expression of color, and eliminates the need to take on the arduous process of developing and organizing one's own pastel collection into this useful arrangement.The pastels are made using high-density mineral pigments with a proven historical record for permanence. The consistency allows rich coverage while maintaining a smooth, dense and creamy texture. All sticks have a number embossed for easy identification. Each of the twelve 28 piece sets features one hue and all of its respective values and intensities. Both the warm and cool sides of the primary colors are represented, along with secondary colors and warm and cool neutrals.

COLOR RANGES: The Blue Earth Pastel line consists of ten color range sets of 28 pastels: Primary hues have a warm and cool box: Red and Quinacridone; Yellow and Lemon; Blue and Cerulean. Secondary hues: Orange, Green, Turquoise and Violet. Two additional sets of Nearly Neutral Cool and Nearly Neutral Warm complete the palette of 336 colors.

ORGANIZATION: Each box is organized from dark (1) to light (7) on the value scale. The color boxes are further divided by intensity: Line A is the brightest; Line B is medium intensity (graying line A with a complement); Line C is less saturated (more graying) and Line D is the least saturated, neutralized and grayed (least intense). Finding the right color is simplified with this method of organization. Complementary color harmonies are easy to create. Organizing by hue, value and intensity allows a relatively small set to present the fullest expression of color.

UNIQUE PACKAGING: Each color range is packaged in a unique format that allows pastels to be inserted vertically in foam cradled boxes that measure 4" x 6 1/4" x 2". The die-cut foam is in two sections, allowing removal and easy access to the pastel sticks.

WOOD BOX FULL SET: The complete set is now available in a handy and portable wood box. The Italian made box features a sliding cover and leather handle. The box measures 24"x13"x3" and weighs 12.5 lbs with the full set of pastels. The Dakota Studio Field Box is available empty (weight 5 lbs).
