Great for hauling a full set of 36 colored pencils around for field work and
coloring on-the-go. This versatile Niji roll-up pouch measures 19" X 7 3/4"
when unrolled, and it can hold up to 36 mechanical pencils, leadholders,
markers, and brushes individually in its own elastic loop. Depending on
circumstances and available space, it can be rolled, folded, or hung for easy
access. During flights, I tend to drape a pencil wrap over my leg. That way I
can keep working on my clipboard with all my tools within reach.
At home or studio, it makes a pretty good choice for organizing and storing an
ever growing collection of art supplies. Just a friendly reminder for my
students, I typically do not haul around a roll loaded with my entire collection
of mechanical pencils. While I may bring many samples for show-and-tell in
class, it is not a good idea given the risk of losing all of them at once. On
the subject of loss prevention, I also recommend placing your loaded roll within
a ziploc bag for extra safety and added water resistance. Bottom line, get
several of these rolls if you like collecting tools or own multiple pencil sets.
