In time for the holidays, we’ve partnered with Case for Making to debut custom-made brush rolls and color-matched palettes! These sets are a celebration of friends, creativity, color, and communing.
CFM is one of our fave local woman-owned-and-operated businesses.They are a storefront offering handmade watercolors and a line of letterpress watercolor papergoods all made in-house, alongside a curated selection of creative supplies. Earlier this year, we started to talk about collaborating and coming up with something that represents all that we care about: sustainability, creativity, process, and COLOR.
We were sitting on a fair amount of patterned fabric backstock that we didn’t want to go to waste, and wondered if we could come up with something to make from it. I think it was actually all of us who had the idea of a brush roll, and we immediately got so excited about this possibility! Inspired by the colored fabrics, CFM came up with a color-match lineup of handmade watercolors!
Over a few meetings to tweak the design and test the supplies inside, we ended up with a beautiful folding brush roll, each with their own collection of 8 watercolors specially made to match the pattern and colorway. CFM even created two unique, blended colors to include in each set — G&G Lilac and CfM Cypress.
Inside these folding brush rolls you’ll also find everything you need to draw and paint: a pencil for sketching, a waterproof pen for lining, an eraser, pencil sharpener, one small round brush and one larger one, a pack of tiny paper that fits in its very own pocket, and a simple travel palette to hold your 8 color-matched colors.
We can't wait to see what you all make with these sets!
