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 Feefo
I buy Claire Fontaine Pastelmat to use with my oil pastels and it is by far the best surface I've ever used for them. On Pastelmat they blend wonderfully, so smooth and effortless. It enables even coverage and so many layers! I particularly like to buy the pads because there is a sheet of glassine(?) paper between each sheet of Pastelmat which stops transfer. If you're careful when tearing a sheet off, you can take the glassine paper attached to the Pastelmat, which is so useful for storage. (Posted on 13/03/2015)
