I’m retired, but the few times I now paint I still use my folding carrier(s). First made (the smaller one) to take in my car from Nolan’s to Atlantic City for a touch up in 1984, the Miss America contest that Vanessa Williams won and subsequently lost, they have been great for my freelance 30+ years in New York. The tool/brush box was perfect for transporting a “paint shop” to commercials, with various crates to fit on the 14″x28″ rolling box.—Allan TrumplerMarch 13, 2018 at 8:51 pm #15495Cobaltgosa

Hi Alan!! You know, a Scenic Artist never gets old, they just lose their color!
I imagine that you, the inventor of Scenic art Tools extraordinaire, might be getting requests for you to build and sell some of them!! Consider…..

Hi, Rachel!— Nice to hear from you! I loved making these toys, but won’t think of going into the manufacturing business. I’m glad to put these ideas out into the universe, let some young whippersnapper make them! Be well, and happy! Hope Cobalt is doing really well, and you personally, too!
