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.

One of the best surfaces I've used for pastel. It's extremely tolerant to layering. Perfect for the detailed portrait work I do. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

Great for pastel, pastel pencils and coloured pencil fine art work. Can work in detail and use several layers of colour. (Posted on 25/09/2016)

I just love this paper. It holds several layers of pastel and is quite forgiving if you need to remove pastel to make any changes. A bristle brush does the job and doesn't seem to damage the surface. The dark colour appears to add depth to the colours applied to it and it's gentle on the fingers. (Posted on 17/11/2015)
