PanPastels are unique, professional artists’ pastels. Because you can apply pastel color like paint, they are perfect for all forms of stamping. Colors contain minimal binders and fillers. Consequently, you get rich, ultra soft and low dust color. We offer these in individual colors as well as sets. Consider these properties:
MIXABLE. Colors mix much like paint. You can even mix them directly from the pan. No need for a separate palette.
HIGHLY PIGMENTED. Rich, pure colors work best when used sparingly. Consequently, they yield 4-5 times the coverage of popular brands.
EASY TO NAVIGATE COLOR SYSTEM. The color families are defined for you. Each color family has a number, and the decimal tells you the intensity. So the color family 680 is bright yellow green. 680.1 is the deepest shade, and 680.8 is the most pale!
INSTANT GRATIFICATION. No prep work or drying time needed. No solvents or water required.
LOW DUST. The manufacturer says low dust. I feel like you can easily work with NO dust, if you use the correct amount.
ERASABLE. Colors can be easily erased with most erasers! This is a major benefit!
FADE RESISTANT. Some colors are more lightfast than others, but overall they are very fade resistant.
MIXED MEDIA FRIENDLY. Works well with pencils, acrylics, encaustic, ink, watercolor, markers, etc. Compatible with spray pastel fixatives and varnishes.
