Parallel Straightedge Drawing & Drafting Boards

These portable, compact drawing boards feature a smooth, warp-resistant Melaminecoated surface and a built-in easy-grip parallel straightedge with clear acrylic edges, eliminating the need for a T-square. They’re great for onthe-go work and are the perfect alternative to a drafting table for students, artists and designers. The boards can either be used flat or at an incline. The sturdy metal legs with rubberized grips are set at an angle so they won’t collapse unintentionally, while the rubber grips on the underside of the board allow you to bring the work surface closer and overhang the table edge at the perfect drawing angle. The precision-made parallel straightedge accommodates paper, board or other material with thicknesses up to 3/16" and the side knob locks the straightedge securely in any position while you work.

RETAILERS, make sure you‘re listed on our page!

itty art straight up >> Paint itty abstracts, still lifes, portraits and more. Or, combine painting with these other great ideas. Acrylic color is easy to work with, but oil color, gouache, etc. are also great mediums. All you need is a brush some acrylic color, water and some inspiration.

<< collage & découpage Skip the paint altogether! Clip images, words and color from printed materials; also fabric, ribbons and even leaves – any flat object! Apply to the canvas with glue or acrylic gel medium. Incorporate rubber stamping into your design if you wish. Glitter and metallic confetti add jazz. Use a coat of lacquer or pourable gloss medium between each layer to create the appearance of depth for a découpage effect.

dimensional << collage Why stop at flat objects? Combine all these ideas into one awesome dimensional collage by applying objects like flowers, coins, buttons, beads, embroidery or wire. Use interesting objects of any sort! You can even combine different size itties, one on top of another.

texture & finish >> Use acrylic mediums to create interesting textures and finishes. Try pourable gloss medium, heavy body gel for impasto, crackle paste, sand and fiber mediums – anything goes!
