PanPastel Colors are professional grade soft pastel colors packed in a unique pan format (cake-like) so that they can be mixed and applied like paint. PanPastels produce very little dust for a cleaner working environment.
All PanPastel Colors are made using a unique manufacturing process requiring minimal binder and fillers, resulting in rich, ultra soft and low dust formulations. Only professional artists' grade pigments are used for the most concentrated colors possible. The colors have excellent lightfastness and are fully erasable.
Each pan contains 40% more material than the average pastel stick, and yields approximately 4-5 times more coverage than sticks. (On average, based on a market survey of standard soft pastel sticks.) PanPastel Colors are fully compatible with pastel sticks, pencils, markers, other artist's colors and mediums, for mixed media techniques, most art and craft surfaces (from delicate handmade papers to toothy pastel surfaces) as well as conventional spray fixatives.
PanPastel colors offer unique packaging which protects the colors, keeping them separate and clean and making them perfect for both studio work and for traveling and plein air work. The pans and storage jars (for Sofft Tools) interlock securely together making it easy to store and organize minimizing the amount of storage space required.
