I needed something compact for traveling on a cruise and was delighted bumping into by this little gem quite unexpectedly! I loved the space It provided me to carry all my essentials several drawing pencils, sharpener, micron pens, white gel pen, 2 ink pens, quill dip pen, erasers, 2 petite-gris watercolor brushes a one small flat hog hair bristle brush, one nubby flat brush, several travel watercolor brushes, 2 water brushes, watercolor notebook, collapsible water cup, 3 mini mister bottles, a thin flat sponge cut to fit and a pocket size pallet of colors, plus a small mini tin with extra small pans of colors! All in a compact padded carrying case!! It was incredible! Everything fit with spare room for a pocket tissues packet. Put it into my luggage and nothing was crushed or out of place! Highly recommended.
