Clairefontaine Pastelmat is a revolutionary pastel painting surface, now available in 50cm x 70cm 360gsm (170lb) sheets in 10 colours. Pastelmat offers a smooth, velvety surface that delivers brilliant adherence when used with soft pastels.
This new concept for the pastel market reduces the need for applying fixative between each layer, so you can add successive layers while still retaining the same vibrant colour. It's soft surface also means it is gentle on your pastels, fingers and any other tools that you use to manipulate your colour. It's texture falls between the softness of velour and the coarseness of sandpaper. It is also exceptionally durable, will stand up to rubbing and is also water-resistant. While specifically designed for use for pastels, this surface can also be used with charcoal or pencil.
Minimum 5 Sheets per Order (can be any mix of colours)
