...I actually cleaned my studio pastel set ... This is the second largest set I work with, after the Wow Box. In the heat of battle the colors get all mixed around and covered with dust, so it's always a bit of a chore to restore it to order. Following the good example of one of my talented friends, I even cleaned [most] of them. I'm liking it much more now, and it will last for awhile at least. I designed the trays and they fit in a drawer under the big work table when not in use. This set doesn't travel.
