I think a lot of watercolour enthusiasts end up collecting paint boxes and palettes. Me I'm no exception. What is it that's so attractive about paintboxes, I don't know, but I ended up owning way more than I need. I think it is a pursuit to find the best paintbox that suits your needs. But sometimes you HAVE TO buy a paintbox that actually has no practical use and here's the example. It's the smallest paintbox I own. I believe the paints are genuine, but I am not going to find out. I bought it from Miniature Treasures. I am very lucky to own this piece of beautiful artefact!
Until I bought the miniature paintbox, the Winsor & Newton Bijou Box was my smallest box and it was my baby. Now the Bijou Box looks like a grown-up!
