PastelmatŽ is a premium card surface (360gsm / 170lb) specially developed for pastelists. Its unique velvety surface, made from a fine coating of cellulose fibers, has the ability to grab and hold multiple layers of even the softest pastels.

Pastelmat significantly reduces the need for fixative, which means that colors remain vibrant and fresh once applied. It has the added bonus of being gentle on both fingers and blending tools. It is acid free and lightfast.

Pastelmat is ideal for use with all dry media - pastel sticks, PanPastel, pencils and charcoal. It is also water resistant which means that it can be used with wet media - such as acrylics and watercolor for washes and mixed media techniques.

At Jackson's we stock the Pastelmat in 8 colours in large sheets (50x70cm) and in three sizes of pads in two groups of assorted colours.

Review by John Currie
I am a pastel portrait artist and have tried many different papers. Pastelmat is quite simply the best surface to work on bar none.It is capable of taking (in my experience) up to 12 layers of pastel which can be easily blended which perfectly suits my style.An added bonus is that my pastel pictures do not have to be fixed, which is something I HATE doing as the colours are always affected.Pastelmat ticks all the boxes for me and I will never use anything else.Oh and by the way the 50 x 70 sheets I use are cheaper on this site than anywhere else.Trust me because I've looked. Happy pastelling! (Posted on 20/08/2015)
