15% Off Pan Pastel Stes of 20

Pan Pastel Set of 20

Pan Pastels are ultra soft professional artistsí pastels packed in a unique pan format. Pan pastels are very blendable which allows you to mix colours to extend your palette. They are also very 'painterly' as you can create very delicate marks and veils whilst also having the ability to block in large areas very quickly. The Pan Pastels mix very well with regular pastels and using them together gives you the advantages of both.
