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.

Cut to full size, great. No visible scratching of surface. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

excellent, but it would be great if you stocked the large sheets, as I use them as my standard teaching paper, and I can get four pieces from one sheet, which is a bit more cost effective. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

the packaging could have been better on the 2 sheets which became a little bent in transit due to heavier items sliding round on top (Posted on 16/03/2017)

Having used many different pastel papers, the first time I used the pastelmat, I knew I was using something special.It is so versatile, I have used the coloured papers applying just Pastels and also the white paper with watercolour washes first, then added Pastels on top when dry, creating lots of gorgeous effects, tonal values and textures. The Pastelmat also holds the pastel, without the need for fixing, so colours are kept lovely and bright. (Posted on 05/02/2017)

Always get my Pastelmat sheets from Jacksons as they are so well wrapped up and protected. The strong cardboard box they come in never gets dumped as it doubles up as a brilliant art folder. Thanks! :-) (Posted on 05/08/2015)
