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.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Easy to use PanPastels
Comments about PanPastel Artists’ Painting Pastels:
These are wonderful pastels to work with on almost any surface. I have used sponges, my fingers and a paint brush for applying these paints to canvas, water color paper, glossy card stock and wood surfaces. The PanPastels are creamy and spread smoothly when applied. I have had a few that were a little on the dry side, but after using a container for a little while, I seem to break below the dry surface to a more creamy texture.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Can't get enough of these
Comments about PanPastel Artists’ Painting Pastels Sets:
So glad to get MORE of these. They are by far my favorite pastels. I use these as a base for colored pencil (to tone paper and as backgrounds) I tend to go for these a lot more than my vast array of soft and hard pastels as there is less dust, my hands stay clean and I can always use all my others with them if needed. I am building my arsenal and only have a couple more sets to go. I've purchased extra tools as well and stocking up as I'm such a hoarder when it comes to my art supplies.

I use the PanPastels in my art journal. They are much easier to use than stick pastels
First class product
from Perth, Western Australia
I use the pan pastels for colouring paper flowers and the results are stunning and so realistic, far superior to standard pastels. Beautiful selection of colours, a tiny bit goes a long way and these will last me for ages. Highly recommended purchase.
Great colors, great addition to pastel 'collection'

I love the texture and blend ability of these Pastels. I have found the reports of other uses absolutely true.
from Hot Springs, AR
Well, I have to say that Blick is one of the best companies I have delt with. I am a crafter, and I sell my products, so the quality of the products I put into them is key.I had a small Issue with my last order and Blick sprang into action to fix it. Since I was on a deadline to complete a piece, I really appreciated their concern, and their ability to have the issue fixed within 24 hours.Quality products, and quality people, Blick has earned my business and is my single source for supplies in the future.Thanks for taking care of me.
By Mixed media Lynn
I absolutely love these pan pastels. I use them as accents in mixed media and am not a pastel artist so can't compare to other brands. But love the quality of these for the work I do.
Great for drawing!
Great for preliminary drawing and also for the final tonality of the overall drawing.
from Pearcy Arkansas
Only thing I would change is I would like to see the color name on the top of the bottle and darker on the side of the bottle----very hard to see color names!! With the bottle top being black you have to either pick up the bottles to see or have them on a rack to view the side.
