Though it was designed for pastellists, Pastelmat is suitable for all dry media, from pastel sticks and pencils to charcoal. It is also water resistant which means that it can be used with wet media such as acrylics or watercolor. Comes in a range of colors, all of which are acid free and lightfast.

This is a pack of five sheets measuring 24x32cm. The sheets are of the color Light Green.

Pastelmat is my go to paper. Strong and soft on the fingers when blending and great for creating layers.

probably my mistake, but I wasn't expecting these sheets to be A4. I will have to rethink what I'll use them for

I love the pastelmat brand but these sheets were coarser than the gummed pad sheets which made it harder to blend and get sufficient coverage

there was black dots on some of the pastelmat so I couldn't use some of it

I have only used this a few times for coloured pencil, not my favourite surface but definitely speeds up the process of coloured pencil drawing. It is a good tough surface. Not used it for pastels yet.

Love this pastel card. Holds soft pastel so well and allows the vibrancy I love with this medium. Wish they did an olive green or a dark blue.

Best Pastel support I have ever used.Very smooth surface that would still take many layers.

great paper to work on

Review

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.

One of the best surfaces I've used for pastel. It's extremely tolerant to layering. Perfect for the detailed portrait work I do.

Feefo
 

Review

I love this colour. It works with almost every subject I paint. It is the perfect partner for pastel. The surface is exactly right for detailed pastel work. It provides the ideal combination to enable the pastel to glide like silk, with the provision for highly detailed work. Very impressive.

Review

I use this colour as a backdrop for many animal portraits. The colour provides a 'sunshine' lightness shining through. Very impressive results. The quality is exactly right for a detailed pastel painter.

Review

very good pastel paper if a little expensive takes a few levels of pastel and is very forgiving to the user for corrections etc.

Feefo
 

Review

I thought it looked good. BUT, did not expect to have difficulty with the soft pastels.They sit on the surface perfectly, but will not budge with any tool /rubber ect. to blend them together. Can you reccomend a solution ?

Review

Very happy with this product. I have the pad but really useful to be able to buy bigger sheets.

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

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.

I have experimented with different pastel papers, and Clairefontaine Pastelmat is by far the best. I use this for watercolour and pastel, and both mediums work excellent. The velour texture of the paper is defintley made for the pastel medium, as the results in saturation of colour is strong, and there is no need for fixative as the paper has a really good grip on the pigments. I would recommend this.

Has excellent grip but easy on soft hands

Great for pastel, pastel pencils and coloured pencil fine art work. Can work in detail and use several layers of colour.

Nice warm colour for portrait work. Holds pastel well and helps to give work a 3D look.

Review

Oh what a joy to discover this paper. I have tried others more sandpapery and harsh on my materials. With pastelmat, you can layer easily, wet the paper and generally give it a good punishing - it is so forgiving. I like the maize for the warm base it gives my paintings. My other favourite is Anthracite.

The first time I have used this paper and found it beautiful.

Review

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.

one of my favourite usable colours - would like to see this colour in a pad as well as the sheets

A strong board which will take other media, and gives an excellent three dimensional look to pastel work.

My first encounter with Clairefontaine pastelmat was 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!

I am a pastel portrait artist and have tried many different papers. Pastelmat is quite simply the best surface to work on bar none.It is capable of taking (in my experience) up to 12 layers of pastel which can be easily blended which perfectly suits my style.An added bonus is that my pastel pictures do not have to be fixed, which is something I HATE doing as the colours are always affected.Pastelmat ticks all the boxes for me and I will never use anything else.Oh and by the way the 50 x 70 sheets I use are cheaper on this site than anywhere else.Trust me because I've looked. Happy pastelling!

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! :-)

Pastelmat really clings to the pastel. Makes many layers possible. A bit expensive but worth it.
