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.

Comments about PanPastel Artists’ Painting Pastels:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Great product at a reasonable price

Comments about PanPastel Artists’ Painting Pastels Sets:
I first started using PanPastel artist's pastels after purchasing the black/gray/white set at Wonderfest in 2015. I planned on buying additional pastels at this year's event but they were not there, so I ordered them from Blick. These are extremely soft pastels that apply very easily and seal nicely with Dull Cote lacquer. I primarily use them when weathering sci-fi and horror models and find that they work much better than dry brushing paints. Overall, I highly recommend them.
from Granville ohio
Works great in mixed media painting. I use this product on top of stenciled modeling paste and to do portraits. Very easy to use.
A truly elegant medium!
from Livermore, CA
I am just an art student and amateur artist, but I feel like PanPastels has boosted my work to the next level. I really like using soft pastels, and adding PanPastels to my choice of media has allowed me to add beautiful backgrounds and under-painting effects to my work. I bought a couple of colors to experiment with, and now I have a whole drawer full! I especially appreciate that PanPastel's item numbers let me understand whether a pan is pure pigment, or a tint (pigment + white), or a shade (pigment + black). I have used some of the tools specific for this medium, but I also use a blunt eyeshadow brush for some nice effects.
from Yorkton, Saskatchewan
I love using pan pastels but have not been able to find a supplier in our area. I am very pleased to be able to order the colours I need and have them arrive so promptly and well packaged.
Fun to use
from Charleston, WV
Easy to use, and make a fun addition to art journaling. Rich color when applied to paper. I am really happy with this product.

Great for train modeling
from Murphy nc
We had attended a train weathering class using pan pastels. They are so much better than chalk but are easy to removed if you think you have overkilled. Also the black pan pastels are great to use on coal loads as they make the coal glisten like real. Definetly an asset to train modelers everywhere.
from Shiocton, WI
This product was recommended by a fellow taxidermist for fish replica painting. Very pleased with the product. Very pleased with the color selection which is hard to find with any other distributor. Fast shipping, comparable pricing. Recommended product!
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.
