PanPastel Colours were developed so that artists can easily lift, apply and control pastel colour, just like true painting. The pan format holds the colour like paint for easy application. Loaded with the highest quality artists pigments; PanPastel Colours 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 colours are highly pigmented, have excellent light fastness and are fully erasable. Each pan contains 9ml - 40% more than the average soft pastel stick, and yields approx. 4 times more coverage. Available in a range of 80 colours.

Easy to Use - Blend, Layer & Apply like Paint For pastel painting and mixed media work use PanPastel Colours to:
• Quickly block in large areas of colour 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 colour
The colours can be mixed and blended together to provide the artist with an infinite colour palette. Unique Packaging PanPastel packaging protects the colours, 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 store and organise the colours and tools, minimising the amount of storage space required.
