Pastelmat 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.

This Pastelmat Pad contains twelve white Pastelmat sheets.

Review by Jackson's Staff
From a customer via email:My first encounter with Clairefontaine pastelmatwas a breeze and a joy. I have a well stocked plan chest of various good quality pastel card and waterbacked papers I am not sure they will ever see the light of day, now I have experienced this cork grain wonder worker.I have used hard pastels, soft pastels nearly every make of pastel, it glides on and it stays on. I can give due consideration to my drawing and make the one stroke, bold and bright. No more smudging for me but the surface will allow that, and making a water wash.My work is what I am interested in but this is so kind to the artist as well, where is the dust, not in my lungs,I have nails and skin on my finger tips.No fixative required,so you can keep all the freshness and colour so carefully choosen right in there.Try the small and medium sized pads to get aquainted with the colour range, when you have your favourite, order in single sheets.This pastelmat gives me confidence and a lot of pleasure.My oil paints and water colours are sulking in an ill lit corner!Clairefontaine Pastelmat was bought to my attention through the Jacksons Art Supplies web site, my loyalty to Jacksons always pays me back well.
