It’s so easy to use PanPastel - the colors are very forgiving to use and they can be corrected easily. Here are a
few basic techniques to get started:
LOAD Sofft Tool with color by swiping gently
Multiple colors can be loaded on Sofft Tool, on
either side and/or the edges.
over pan color surface 1-3 times. Do not dig
into the color. Tip: swiping too many times
will generate excess dust & waste.
to create custom colors. Colors can
either be mixed directly on the model surface
or on a pan.
color to model surface – achieve
desired color coverage by building up layers. If
the color application looks too heavy you can
tone it down or remove easily (see “removing
or changing colors”).
TIPS FOR USING SOFFT TOOLS:
- You may need to apply light (finger) pressure on the Sofft Tools
to “push” color into surface.
- Vary pressure to change amount of color applied.
- Manipulate sponges / use edges for different lines & marks.
Cleaning Pan Surfaces:
If a pan’s surface becomes contaminated
with another color, “clean” pan by gently
wiping away the contamination with a
clean Sofft sponge or paper towel.
Cleaning Sofft Tools:
The same tool can be used with
multiple colors - “clean” between
colors by wiping on a dry paper towel.
