This is my travel kit! It’s inspired by Cathy Johnson’s version which can be seen here.
- Altoids tin
- Spray paint (black and white)
- Half pans
- That blue tacky stuff
- Watercolor paints! (tube)
- Drawing/painting supplies (Pencil, Eraser, Scratch Card, Brush)
Step 1: Paint your tin! First, tape the edges of the inside off so the paint doesn’t go where you don’t want it to. Then, with the black paint, spray the outside of the tin carefully. Wait for it to dry for as long as that paint’s recommended time states. Flip over and do the bottom. For the white inside, tape the outside edges (the black), then spray it with white paint. Wait for it to dry. This entire process should take about 2 days.
Tip: Spray paint on a large piece of cardboard for easy clean up!
Step 2: Fill your half-pans with your tube paint. Use whatever colors you want. For the size of the tin, it’s best to use primary colors mainly, then whatever other colors you can fit. Set them out to dry, this can take anywhere from 2 to 3 days.
Step 3: When the pans are dried, take little balls of that blue tacky stuff (you know what I’m talking about), and stick it to the bottom of the pans. Push the pans into the bottom of the tin firmly as this keeps them from coming loose and falling out.
Step 4: Add the rest of your supplies! This can include a travel brush, pencil, eraser chunk, or even a scratch card - whatever you want!
Bonus: Decorate the outside of the tin with cute stickers, like mine!
