The idea behind the development of PanPastel was to create a dry colour medium that would work like a fluid paint. The pan format changes everything! Making the colours function like a dry velvety paint. This brings many benefits, for example the artist can now mix pastel colours together for the first time.
While the colours are used for traditional painting and drawing techniques, they are also being used for countless mixed media techniques.
They are now being used extensively in combination with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and other artist’s soft blending pencil ranges for backgrounds and large areas of loose colour effects.
