A Message From Dawn:
“Used alone or in conjunction with stick pastels, PanPastel offers new
opportunities for layering over many surfaces and media that stick pastels
simply cannot be applied to. The Sofft Applicators can act like a brush or palette
knife to give the artist more ways to make marks and control pressure.
Unlike stick pastels, PanPastel Colors leave no crumbly edges when used
through stencils. Colors can be applied thinly to achieve a wash-like transparent
quality that reveals layers below, or the color can be applied many layers deep
to achieve a more intense, opaque appearance. Contrary to the traditional rule
of pastel, dark colors can be put over light colors, and colors can be changed
completely without scraping off a previous layer. Because of the fine consistency
of the pigments, PanPastel Colors can be erased, scraped through with various
tools, or used with wet and dry media. In short, PanPastel affords the artist
unlimited possibilites for layering and mixing colors in new ways to offer each
artist new tools for expression.
PanPastel Colors are non-toxic and less dusty than stick pastels. They are easy
to store, transport, and clean. With this set of 40 pans and a few applicators
you should be able to mix virtually any color you wish, including metallics,
pearlescents, shades and tints! You can even “dilute” any color by adding the
Colorless Blender to it. PanPastel Colors are fun to use and don’t require an
easel or special “pastel” papers. Enjoy creating and combining colors as you
would with paint. The color mixing chart enclosed is only to give you an idea of
where to begin! Just play and discover what you can do!”

DEMONSTRATING WITH PANPASTEL:
“PanPastel Colors give me the freedom I need to explore new
ways to use color, layering, and mark making in my work.”
4SURFACES Try applying PanPastel Colors to different
substrates (not just paper!) of different colors and textures
and notice how they spread differently and look more or less
intense, opaque, or transparent, on the different papers.
4 MIXED MEDIA Use over wet or dry mediums like graphite,
colored pencils, charcoal, oil pastel, oil sticks, wax, or wet
mediums like oil, printmaking ink, acrylic, water color, etc.
As long as you don’t contaminate the pan/sponge applicator
with another medium (like oil or water, turp or alcohol) you
will discover that you don’t have to wait for things to dry
before applying the PanPastel. Use a light touch!

4 FIXATIVE Spray fix or varnish (using any good quality
pastel compatible fixative/varnish) to make color unmovable
and to isolate layers.
4 ERASE & SCRAPE Use both additive and subtractive
approaches. Subtract with hard and soft erasers, scratch
through to layers below with razor blades.
4 EXPERIMENT & HAVE FUN! Note that each color name
& no. is identified on the base of the pan. Take notes about
your discoveries, and share your exploits with friends.
4 Try painting a subject in different color harmonies: black/grey/white, monochromatic, complementary, analogous, triadic,
split complementary, OR just have fun and go for it!
4 Create beautiful calligraphic marks with the large Sofft Angle Slice Sponge.
4 Take just PanPastel to a figure drawing class. Draw shapes with PanPastel, then add lines with charcoal.
