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.

Love these pastels
Comments about PanPastel Artists’ Painting Pastels Sets:
The control I have with Pan Pastels is amazing. I have found dollar store make-up applicators to work the best. You can draw thin lines, blend or cover large areas simply by using different sides of the foam applicator. The qtips I use for other pastels did not work well at all. Blending various colors works beautifully. I bought a set of darks, will purchase other colors soon.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use the pastels with the pan pastel soft tools, paint brushes, sponges and paper stubs. They give a very silky, powdery look to the drawing. Great for tonal values. You can combine them with pastel stcks or charcoal for more texture. Love them!
Pan Pastel caps/lids
I broke my pastels down and store them in a 20 count tray, which I got on sale at Blacks, it's easier to work with. So I use the caps to protect all pastels. Like this as you can now work and see all colors and group colors together.
I just love the pan pastels. Wonderful and fun to work with. Very good quality and best prices on the market.

I use these pan pastels to really get a good start adding colors to my fish taxidermy. They allow a wide range of coloring options to each individual fish.

I have been using this product for 9 years now, and love it. I teach panpastels and have turned all of my students toward using and buying the panpastels.

I love these pastels. I use them with my watercolors. I just started using them, so I hope to get better with them. They are quite easy to use.

Ordering was easy and I got my purchase before the projected date. Packaged well. I've ordered other products from Blick online since I got these and will definitely continue to order from Blick.
New Product for me!
I am reviewing the Pan Pastels and applicators. As an elapsed oil and water color artist, as well as pen and ink illustrator, in the last few years I have been doodling that expanded into a fad that I didn't know existed - Zendangles. I became interested in adding color and experimented with large sets of colored pencils and colored ink pens. I wasn't satisfied until I found a Wall Street Journal article about adults using coloring books for relaxation. I started by ordering a small set of PanPastels and added more colors in this next set with more applicators. I thought of creating applicators from make-up sponges, but the different sizes of applicators work well. The pastel colors are vivid and intense. They quickly fill backgrounds and add subtle detail without texture. At the same time, you are limited only by your imagination as far as creating textures with the pastels. They are low-dust and worth trying. Warning: you can't use just one - you will want more!
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.
