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 Colours are professional artists’ quality soft pastel colours packed in a unique pan format (cake-like). The special qualities of PanPastel Colours mean that artists can blend and apply dry colour like fluid paint for the first time. All PanPastel Colours 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 a pastel colour, they can be mixed for a complete painting palette.

PanPastel Colours 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 colours like paint
  • Instant: no drying or preparation time is 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 artists’ 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.
