Welcome to dickblick
Here are genuine artists’ quality pastels — the softest in the world — uniquely packaged in stacking and interlocking jars. The packaging protects the colors, thus reducing damage and waste. PanPastels were specially developed so that artists could lift, apply, and control pastel color, just like true painting. The pan format holds color like paint for easy application. Each pan contains 35% more material than the average pastel stick. (On average, based on a market survey of standard soft pastel sticks.) The label, with color name and number, remains with the color pan for easy identification.
Loaded with the highest quality artists’ pigments, PanPastel colors are made using a unique manufacturing process requiring minimal binder and fillers, resulting in a rich, ultra soft, low-dust formulation. These professional quality colors are highly pigmented and have excellent lightfastness. They are erasable and fully compatible with traditional pastel sticks, pastel surfaces, and conventional fixatives. They can be mixed, blended, layered, and applied like paint for an infinite palette of colors.
With PanPastel, it is possible to create more painterly effects. The artist can apply controlled marks, from intense to delicate — ultra thin “glazing” layers and veils of color. It is possible to block in large areas of color in seconds, for backgrounds, underpainting, and tinting paper. PanPastels clean up easily.
Each jar contains 9 ml (0.3 oz) of pastel. Instructions are also included.

Fast and complete
By Paul Frederick
Arrived quickly and in perfect condition
Pan Pastels are a great way to get down a base color quickly and in a fun manner!
from AZ desert
I use the black Pan Pastel to quickly make charcoal sketches.
My new favorite tool for getting dimension. Great pigment.
By Collage Queen
from Washington DC
I love using this product with Faber Castell Polychrm pencils. The pearlescents are great for creating light and the tints can cover a larger area without making lines or having to use baby oil. You can layer the pan pastel over or under the pencil.
from San Miguel, Ca
I am new to this medium so this was the first time using it. I found it to be quite nice and very pigmented. I will have to do more art to really get the hang of it but am looking forward to it.
I would buy more of this product
from Calais, Maine
They work well as expected. I use them with encaustic paint.

Similar to Applying Makeup
from Pemberton, NJ
I've never been a huge fan of pastels, until I found the PanPastels here on Blick. They remind me of makeup pancakes, and just like makeup, the PanPastels have the texture of soft, powerdery blush or eyeshadow. The colors are rich and varied with both matte and metallic powders to choose from. They are easy to blend right on the applicator sponge and create another color. The PanPastels layer wonderfully with the correct paper. Sanded pastel paper, or paper with a tooth is probably the best for this media. I've run into paper that won't layer and is too smooth to create any depth with the pastels. When my first set arrived to my house, two of the colors had cracked into tiny pieces and were unusable. I called Customer Service at Blick, and they immediately mailed me a new replacement for the two broken colors. I was very grateful for their prompt and courteous service.BOTTOM LINE: I would highly recommend PanPastels. Especially if one is apprehensive about adding pastels into his or her supply cache. The price is good for the set of 80+ colors compared to the professional stick brands. Be sure to purchase the plastic PanPastel holders to better organize and prevent accidents. Also, be sure to buy the extra sponges because you will need them!#SWEEPSTAKES

I'm still learning how to use these panpastels but they sure are fun
PanPastels were created to offer the artist a new tool for artistic expression by merging dry medium with wet, painterly technique. These highest quality pastels are rich, soft and lightfast and are contained in a truly unique pan that holds 35% more material than the average stick pastel.
See what distinquishes these high quality artists' pastels and tools from any other. Both products were invented for artists by artists and offer a new and unique way of painting with pastel. This video will show various applications, tips, and techniques.
Sofft tools were specifically developed for use with PanPastel soft pastels but are so versatile, inexpensive, and reusable, they can also be used with most water-based art and craft materials. Try using with watercolor, acrylic paint, glazes and with a variety of dry mediums, such as hard or soft traditional pastels and charcoal to create exciting new techniques, marks, and effects.
