Artist Air

1

As a pastel artist who is working on a sanded surface, the health issue is constantly on my mind. The dustexposure can’t be ignored and I always used small air filters in my old studio. My studio is much bigger now, hence it was time for a new air filter.

I bought a really nice one from Artist Air, which was specially designed for pastel artists.
The easel collection unit stays on the easel tray, so a big amount of pasteldust goes right into it:

With a velcro strap the collection unit is easaly secured and holds it in place, but does not hinder you from sliding the easel tray up and down. After the first day in my studio I could tell the difference.

Unfortunately the filter is sold only in North America, but I had no problems with ordering, shipping etc. Everything arrived in good order and condition.
Surprisingly the manufactorers had adjusted the filter to the German power network (230V, 50Hz).

    Hi Astrid, thanks for the post. Now if only they would realize that most artists need a lower-budget version. .. :)
