Pan Pastel Sets
Pan Pastels are ultra soft professional artistsí pastels packed in a unique pan format. The colour is lifted from the pan using applicators and sponges specifically developed for use with the pastels (see the Sofft Tools section). 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.
Pan pastels are best applied to the less abraisive papers such as Uart 800, Pastelmat, Sennelier papers, Hahnamuhle papers and traditional papers such as Mi-Teintes, Ingres and watercolour papers. This is simply because the applicators and sponges work extremely well on less abraisive surfaces, allowing you to paint with delicacy and also to make free flowing marks.
There are 80 standard colours in the range as well as metallic and fluroescent colours. A range of pearescent mediums is also available which you can apply to all of the pan pastel colour range.
