The pastel adheres so well to this new paper that you don’t need to use a fixative between each layer. You are able to multiply the layers without a saturation effect. Pastelmat brings new opportunities for pastel artists, offering a coarser surface than velour but a softer surface than sand paper. Available in 8 colours: warm, cold or achromatic colours for every subject with dry pastels. In the pads, each sheet is protected by a crystal paper divider. Rub out or wet the paper, the Pastelmat keeps its original properties.

Pastelmat® has a unique interaction with pastels, allowing the artist to create painterly effects with soft, buttery marks. Pastelmat offers remarkable control, allowing for effortless, precision blending of pigments. Holds up to water or solvent-based washes. This allows pastelists to create underpaintings with solutions of denatured alcohol or other solvents and to build layers on top.

Pastelmat®'s is so versatile that, in addition to pastel and pastel pencils, it will support most dry and wet media including: oil pastels, charcoal, colored pencils, acrylics, watercolors and gouache. Pastelmat® supports the application of soft, medium and hard pastels, Cray-Pas® and other oil pastels, PanPastel® colors as well as pastel pencils.

Acid-free / Neutral pH Glassine Sheets: Pastlemat® pads are bound with glassine barrier sheets between each page to prevent smudging. 165lb/360gsm
