PanPastel is delighted to announce a new set in collaboration with Dawn Emerson – the “Dawn Emerson Collection” Set. Dawn uses PanPastel as a tool that fills a space for pastel and mixed media artists who wish to layer more creatively, physically, and spontaneously. Dawn finds that PanPastel offers transparency that is not possible to achieve with a pastel stick, for her drawings, paintings, mixed media, image layering & printmaking.
PanPastel is a revolutionary new way to use colour. PanPastel Colors are professional artists’ quality soft pastel colours packed in a unique pan format (cake-like). The special qualities of PanPastel Colors mean that artists can blend and apply dry colour like fluid paint for the first time.
All PanPastel Colors are made using a unique manufacturing process requiring minimal binder and fillers, resulting in rich, ultra-soft and super-blendable colours.
Each colour is loaded with the finest quality artists’ pigments for the most concentrated colours possible. The colours have excellent lightfastness and are fully erasable. Uniquely, for pastel colour, they can be mixed for a complete painting palette.
PanPastel Colors offer many advantages:
Super-blendable: the pan format and their ultra-soft formulation mean that PanPastel Colors blend beautifully for an infinite palette of colours.
Paintable: for the first time artists can apply and mix (dry) pastel colour like paint
Instant: no drying or preparation time needed. Simply lift the colour using a Sofft Tool to start painting immediately
Easy: no solvents, water or other special mediums are required – use PanPastel colours “dry” for the benefits of wet paint without the hassle.
Erasable: PanPastel is a very forgiving medium to use – use any eraser to correct mistakes or remove the colour. An eraser can also be used to create highlights and for subtractive drawing techniques.
Versatile: compatible with other artist’s media and almost any art & craft surface (even thin delicate papers as there is no bleed-through or buckling because PanPastel is dry colour).
Control: using Sofft Tools it is easy to control the colour, and to achieve a wide variety of marks and effects
Very low dust: for a cleaner, more pleasant working environment. Generating less waste.
