PanPastel Sofft Tools let you draw, paint and blend like never before! The Sofft range is a generation of tools and applicators for artists and crafters, created by artists for artists. Sofft Tools were specifically developed for use with PanPastels, and may also be used with most water-based art and craft materials to create a variety of exciting new effects.
The shape of each Sofft Tool has been designed specifically for the needs of artists and crafters. A number of different effects can be achieved with each tool, for example, by using the sides and edges of the tools. Sofft products are versatile, inexpensive and can be re-used again and again (the number of times depends on the type of color and surface being used).
