Sorry for the delay

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

Pastelmat significantly reduces the need for fixative, which means that colours 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 watercolour for washes and mixed media techniques.

At Jackson's we stock Clairefontaine Pastelmat papers in large sheets (50x70cm) as well as a range of pads.

Review by Glenda
What a joy to have discovered this paper. I can really punish it. My under paintings are done with alcohol and pastel and I still get a glow. I am now experimenting with faux impasto techniques in pastel with great results. Thank you Clairefonteyn. May I mention that the price is good as well? (Posted on 18/10/2016)
