Not long ago I received a question about chalk pastel storage from a fellow artist…
Pictured above: the chalk pastel storage drawer and our Angry Birds Chalk Pastel Tutorial.
Question: “Hi Tricia! We’ve loved doing many of your chalk pastel tutorials. Thank you!!
How do you store your pastels? I thought I remembered seeing a divided tray in one of the tutorials, but couldn’t find it. Putting all the little pieces back into the little plastic tray they came in is like doing a puzzle each time 😉 Looking for a better way.
Answer: Thanks for your question! The answer is: several ways…
I think what you are thinking of is a storage box we got at Michael’s craft store. It is designed for those that do jewelry making and beading (2nd photo here in our first listing of tutorials: Pastels Plus Links to Tutorials )
Then Nana gave us a really nice box to store them all this way. We love it: Soft Chalk Pastels – Storage and Cleaning
But we also have a box that looks like this that we simply close the cardboard lid on and put away in the closet. I have a photo of our chalk pastel cardboard box on my Instagram. And more details on The Chalk Pastels We Love.

Hope that helps some! It really is truly simple.
