The Classic box of Artwork Essentials consists of a spring-loaded panel holder to hold the working panel from the top, and a supporting means to support the panel from the bottom.
On the Classic-Mini and Classic-1, there are two or three pairs of hooks located in different height to support different panel sizes from the bottom. To mount a panel on the Classic-Min or Classic-1, simply turn one pair of the hooks outward, place the working panel onto the hooks, then pull the spring-loaded panel holder from the top until it holds the top of the working panel. The supporting hooks can also support stretched canvas.
The side hinges are patented and feature a large knob that adjusts the tilt of the working panel in seconds. This is a unique feature of all EASyL pochade boxes that can’t be found anywhere else in the market.
