These are available at travel goods stores, most bag shops, and many other
outlets. They are actually designed for keeping your passport and other
travel documents hidden under your shirt and come with a neck strap. The
one I am using I actually bought to hold my Sharp ZR5800 organiser and
spare batteries, This made it too heavy to wear around my neck so I removed
the cord and threaded it onto my belt. Now I need to get another one
A6 Cartridge Sketchbook
Nothing special here, just a plain sketchbook from the newsagents.
I have discovered that when using the Aquash brush with the watercolours,
you are using a lot less water than you normally would. Therefore you
can add colours to a normal sketchbook without the paper cockling.
Not that I have had to use this yet, it is quite amazing how long the
water in the brush lasts for. This handy little bottle originated in an
audio cassette tape cleaning kit. After the cleaning fluid had gone I
decided not to throw it away in case it came in handy (although I couldn't
think what on earth for at the time). Anyway, unless you are a hoarder
like me you will need to find a really small watertight bottle with a
Pentel Aquash Brush
These are marvelous. I got my first one in a Pentel Aquash Sketching Set,
which contained the brush, some water soluble crayons, a sharpener and
a cleaning sponge. I spotted another one in the newsagents one day and
snapped it up for in my watercolour pencil box. To get yours, if you can't
find one locally, just do a web search for "Pentel Aquash Brush"
Cotman Sketchers Pocket Box
I found this on special at my local art shop and snapped it up, even though
I have a few watercolour sets, this is a lot smaller than any of them
and was just what I was looking for as part of my compact sketching kit.
It even came with a little folding brush, although I haven't used it as
the Pentel brush does all that I need.
This is just a stubby fat fountain pen, that I find really comfortable
to hold. It uses universal ink cartridges and there is room for a spare
cartridge in the pen body
The Staedtler 0.9mm pencil is my long time favourite and I use it with
2B leads. I spotted the Faber-Castell the other day in the Post Office
and was rather intrigued by the fact that it has automatic lead advance,
so I had to buy one to try it out, it was only AU$1.95 for the pencil
with a dozen refill leads (0.7mm 2B)
Pentel Click Eraser
Or whatever suits you. I just find this the most convenient way to carry
