This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a smaller version of the regular wooden easel. This was originally intended for decoration, but I went ahead and made it usable for children only, and the painting does not 'rest' on the easel properly (see screenshots). I also made a paintbrush to go with the mesh. The paintbrush does not overwrite the original paintbrush, and is required for the easel to work properly.

Since this was cloned from the original easel, I don't think you need any EPs.

This is EP ready and color enabled.

You can find the easel in the hobbies-->creative section of buy mode.

The easel has 768 facets and 1387 vertices and the brush has 72 facets and 54 vertices.

You can recolor and upload my items in lots as long as you link back here, but never upload this on a pay site.

Ooer...thats pretty expensive for a kids easel. Hehe.
Could you do more recolours, please?
Like Red, Pink, Black, etc?

Strange... I could swear the easel I uploaded was only 350§. I'm thinking of making some changes, such as the canvas not lying on the easel correctly, so I think I can add more colors then, too.
