Ampersand Pastelbord

Because Pastelbord’s unique surface is a hand-applied kaolin clay ground textured with fine marble dust granules, it can hold more pastel layers than any other surface.

Pastelbord is perfect for soft or oil pastels and pastel pencils — colors go on smooth, blend beautifully and stay rich and vibrant in both wet and dry pastel paintings. Or paint on Pastelbord to achieve amazing results with acrylics, oils, watercolors, gouache, charcoal, and more. White Pastelbord panels can easily be hand-tinted using thin washes of gouache or acrylics.

Pastelbord panels are 1/8" (3 mm) thick, in Dark Green, Gray, Sand, or White.

Made in the USA.
