Clairefontaine Pastelmat Pad – 12 sheets (360gsm) No.6 Anthracite

Pastelmat offers pastel artists new opportunities with a unique surface that grabs pastels more effectively than Ingres papers but is less abrasive then sanded papers.

  • Organic Velvety Surface: Pastelmat is a truly unique product with a strong, velvety surface that has more tooth than traditional Ingres papers but without the abrasive qualities of sanded papers. Pastelmat’s organic surface and powerful texture are derived from cellulose plant fibers
  • Vibrant Color: Pastelmat’s texture grabs onto the pastel, breaking up the pigment and pulls it deep into the surface for exceptionally vibrant color.
  • “Painting with Pastel”: Pastelmat has a unique interaction with pastels, allowing the artist to create painterly effects with soft, buttery marks.
  • Blending: Pastelmat offers remarkable control, allowing for effortless, precision blending of pigments.
    Layering: Supports building up multiple layers of pigment to control color tone and intensity.
  • No Pastel Dust: The extreme abrasiveness of sanded papers generates large amounts of dust. Pastelmat ‘s velvety surface produces relatively little dust so that such precautions are not necessary.
  • Fine- line Artwork: Unlike grittier sanded papers, Pastelmat’s velvety surface is suitable for fine line artwork.
  • Lower Consumption Rate of Costly Pastels: Pastelmat’s surface consumes pastel sticks at a 30% slower rate than sanded papers.
  • Foam & Sponge Applicators: Pastelmat supports the use of foam and sponge applicators of applying pigment, blocking areas of color, layering and underpainting.
  • Non-toxic Surface: Pastelmat’s non-toxic surface is created with natural cellulose particles. In comparison, sanded papers are adapted from materials designed for industrial use.
  • No need for fixatives: Because Pastelmat’s surface pulls and holds pigment so deeply, fixatives are not needed to keep the color stable.
  • Mixed Media Surface: Pastelmat is so versatile that, in addition to pastel and pastel pencils, it will support most dry and wet media including: oil pastels, charcoal, colored pencils, acrylics, watercolors and gouache.
  • Acid-free / Neutral pH
