Excellent quality, identical to nationally advertised one.
from Seward PA
Comments about Blick Studio Steel Tripod Watercolor Easel:
Sorry to see this easel discontinued, it is identical to the pricey nationally advertised one's. Very lightweight yet solid being made of metal instead of aluminum. No movement at all when used for watercolor or pencil sketching.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great watercolor easel
from New York NY
I do demos at outdoor shows. This easel is portable, doesn't take up space in the car & adjusts height & any angle I need. Great easel.

from Jefferson City MO
This easel is excellent. It is very sturdy, and can be used indoors and outside and is very stable. The price was a fantastic deal.
At first look I think it will be good.
from Big Bend, Texas
Haven't used it yet but I had one like it a few years back that worked fine. This one is lighter, which will make it easier to tote for plein air. I like the way I can tilt the easel at any angle for drawing or watercolor. If the plastic parts hold up (and I'm concerned about them in my dry climate), it will definitely be worth it!
Waste of metal. Broke on second use within 3 weeks
from Richmond, VA
This was a huge disappointment and a complete waste. I got one 3 weeks ago and it broke on second use. VERY cheap. I liked that it was light. An awful waste of metal. Don't waste your money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that this easel didn't last as it should have. One of our Customer Care Representatives will be in touch so we can take care of this for you.

Great Lightweight and Easy to Use Easel!
from Plant City, FL
This easel is everything I wanted. Not only is it very affordable compared to others, it easily adjusts to fit small or large sized watercolor paper. I like that it's easy to set up and break down also. No complaints here, nothing but praise!
Good, sturdy portable easel. Good value.
By Rod Rosa
from Auburn, NH
I use this easel from airbrushing portraits. It is much sturdier than its wooden equivalents and has plenty of adjustability for different dive canvases. I wish it was slightly heavier, what would add even further to its stability. Overall a good product for a great price.
A great easel at the price
from eastern shore of maryland
I have used this style easel for many years--it is light weight, easy to set up and take down, very flexible and at this price was hard to beat. I use them in my studio for students because it is so easy to set up and take down. In the summer, fall and spring, I keep one in the car for plein air painting. I recommend this easel instead of a heavy and expensive french easel, especially for students using pastels and watercolors. The metal may be a little fragile--I have snapped off a leg on other versions of this easel so I remember to be gentle when I set it up. One drawback is the lack of a shelf--however, many years ago I bought a plastic shelf from another company that will fit on the legs--it cost more than the easel!

A great easel for horizontal watercolor painting.
