Discipline: Product

This robust paint box impresses with a unique and emotive design. The transparent cover allows you to see the vibrant colors inside, which are housed on an easily removable color tray. The innovative circular arrangement of the colors is defined by a distinct, “slim-waist” form. It reflects the order of the color wheel and thereby helps young painters to master subtractive color mixing and the basics of chromatics. Handy click-fasteners ensure that the unit is easy and safe for use by children, and also prevents it from opening accidentally inside the school bag. The bottom part functions as a mixing tray and is easy to remove and clean.
