Hands-free holder

When painting outdoors or as part of a class, table space is limited at best. If you’re having a hard time keeping your brushes tucked behind your ears, there’s an affordable solution. The Q Grip Canvas Clip attaches firmly to any side of a stretched canvas. Grippers gently hold paintbrushes and pencils, yet won’t let them slip or slide—you can even mount it upside down! The holder won’t interfere with your painting, and the location of your brushes is one less thing to worry about while painting en plein air. The Q Grip Canvas Clip holds up to eight brushes, pencils or tools and is available for $7. For more information, contact: Get A Grip Inc., P.O. Box 637, Philomath OR 97370. Tel: 541/929-2207.
