We had been selling quite a few of the 6x8 ThumBox™ (v1) and people were still wanting something smaller- something more discreet. So, in 2009 Carl referred back to one of his first pochade box designs and began developing what we now know as the 5x7 Pocket Box™. It was introduced to the public in early 2010. In addition to being unobtrusive and easy to carry, the 5x7 format enables you to find inexpensive frames for your work.
Carl says: “My original 5x7 box, built in the 80s’ was constructed from apple wood from our orchard, using tempered Masonite for the top and bottom. Its lid opened against a wood block, so it had only one position. Holding it by my left thumb, I used it to paint dozens of little panels.”

Guerrilla Cartón™ Plein Air 5x7 Panels (10-pack)
Thin resin-sized card stock provides a great undercolor for oil and acrylic paintings. It's possible to paint directly on them, but we recommend a coat of clear acrylic gesso or gel medium to make these panels less absorbent. Very lightweight and compact, good for use while traveling. Tan color. Made in the USA. 0.03" thick. 10 sheets per pack.

Premium Gessoed Hardboard 5x7 Panels
We think these are the best gesso panels on the market. They feature a beautiful warm white surface that has just the right amount of tooth and absorbency for traditional oil and acrylic techniques. Two coats of specially formulated acrylic gesso are applied to a substrate of 1/8” high-density tempered hardboard. Made in the USA.
