Best Classic Dulce Easel
Best Classic Dulce Easel is a classic H-frame easel that is suitable for oil painting, acrylic and casein. It is produced in America out of solid top quality American oak wood.
This easel is very sturdy and stable with its quad base with pre-drilled holes in case you want to add casters to it (they sell the casters separately, not included in the pack with the easel).
I personally do prefer my easel having casters since I enjoy working on larger pieces and it can be difficult adjusting your easel to catch that perfect light if you have to drag its heavy construction along with your painting surface mounted on it.
So, I would definitely recommend that you purchase the casters and put them on the base it will make your life easier.
Classic H-frame construction supports your canvas and big bottom canvas holder holds it safely in place so you do not have to worry that it will move even if you put a bit more energy into your painting.
Top canvas holder is big enough to secure the canvas and can be tightened so there is no movement of the painting surface at all. On the bottom canvas holder you have a tool tray that is attached to it and moves along the main mast together with it.
The tool tray is big enough for you to keep the brushes and some paint tubes at hand while working. All the moving parts are built in a manner to allow you easy adjustments while you are working, whether you prefer to work while standing or sitting.
Best Classic Dulce easel is foldable, so it is easy storing it out of the way when you are not working. Height of the easel when fully stretched is 90″ and it is 54″ when folded.
Maximum height of painting surface the easel can accommodate is 82″ and the maximum weight of the painting surface that it can hold is 40lbs. The base is 22″ x 24″.
Some simple assembly is required upon purchase, but it’s almost fully assembled so that will not be an issue. The price is quite reasonable considering the quality of Best Classic Dulce easel and its durability.
All in all, this is an excellent piece of painting equipment at a reasonable price for the quality you are getting.
