I saw this business card holder and instantly knew I needed to turn it into a watercolor kit that I can carry in my pocket. So I did and now have something to bring everywhere!

I really don't even feel that it's there. I've painted in coffee shops, libraries and more. Not taking up a lot of space or making a mess.

And it's a lot of fun working with a limited palette and paper size.

This is the prototype, but final will be very close to this. Instead of a bottle cap, the large well on the right will be used to hold water while you paint. Just wipe it out when you're done.

Bring your art everywhere!
Bring your art everywhere!

I like making things, experimenting and doing small scale production runs. The Pocket Watercolor Kit ticks all those boxes for me and I'd like to make a small run of these for you lovely people of Kickstarter!

Comes with:

  • 10 cut-to-size sheets of watercolor paper
  • 12 random colors in a plastic tray with an empty well for water
  • Paintbrush that fits inside

That's all you need to start creating art anywhere!

Risks and challenges

Vacuum forming the tray might be a little tricky. It's pretty small so I need to experiment more with that. Everything else is straightforward and tested. It's a small production run and if I find anything, I can quickly solve it.
