PanPastel Colors are genuine artists' quality pastels, uniquely packed in a pan format. PanPastel Colors were developed so that artists can easily lift, apply and control pastel color, just like true painting! The pan format holds the color like paint for easy application.
Loaded with the highest quality artists' pigments; PanPastel Colors are made using a unique manufacturing process requiring minimal binder and fillers, resulting in a rich, ultra soft and low dust formulation. All of these professional quality colors are highly pigmented and have excellent lightfastness. Each pan contains 40% more material than the average pastel stick. PanPastel Colors are fully compatible with traditional pastel sticks, pastel surfaces, conventional fixatives, and other artists' colors.
For pastel painting, art journaling, and mixed media work, use PanPastel Colors to:
. Quickly block in large areas of color in seconds, e.g. for backgrounds and underpainting
. Achieve a more painterly effect in pastels
. Apply controlled marks - from intense strokes to delicate marks
. Build up multiple layers while controlling the surface "tooth" fill
. Apply ultra thin "glazing" layers & veils of color
The colors can be mixed and blended together, eliminating the need to invest in hundreds of colors for a complete pastel painting palette.
PanPastel packaging protects the colors, keeping them separate and clean, making them perfect for both studio work and for traveling / plein air work. The pans interlock securely together making it easy to organize the colors and minimizing the amount of storage space required.
Each pan contains 9ml (0.30 fl. oz.) of color - approximately 40% more than the average soft pastel stick, and yields approx. 4 times more coverage.
