PanPastel Painting SetSET/20

Paint with pastels in a revolutionary new way.

PanPastel is a line of professional artist quality soft pastel colours packed in a convenient pan format. Created with a unique manufacturing process requiring minimal binder and fillers, they are rich, ultra-soft and super-blendable colours that allow you to easily lift, apply, and control pastels with the dynamic application of painting. Each pack contains 0.30 fl oz (9 ml) of colour that will provide you with at least 4-5 times more coverage than traditional pastels, leaving behind minimal dust.

Compatible with almost any other artist media, these pastel colours are easy to work with. No drying or preparation time is needed; no solvents or other special mediums are required. Being a very forgiving medium, you can use any eraser to correct your mistakes or remove colour to create highlights.

The pan format protects the colours, keeping them separate and clean in the studio and when transporting them. The pans stack up securely together, making it easy to store and organize the colours, minimizing the amount of storage space required.

While most of the colours in this line are lightfast, some colours may fade over time when exposed to light. Please refer to this PanPastel colour chart for a complete list of lightfast ratings.

All the colours have been independently tested to ASTM D-4236 standards, and are certified with the ACMI AP Non-Toxic seal. They have also been tested and certified as lead-free.

The Painting Set contains Sofft Tools (2 Sofft Knives, 10 Sofft Covers, 3 Sofft Sponges, 3 Sofft Applicators), 4 storage jars, and 20 colours: Titanium White, Hansa Yellow, Diarylide Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Orange, Permanent Red, Red Iron Oxide, Magenta, Violet, Ultramarine Blue, Turquoise, Phthalo Green, Permanent Green, Bright Yellow Green, Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber, Black, Neutral Grey, and Paynes Grey.

GOLDEN Introductory Professional Acrylics Set of 6SET/6

Known for their exceptionally smooth and buttery consistency, these professional paints offer pure pigments in a 100% acrylic emulsion.

GOLDEN’s Heavy Body Paint provides excellent permanency and lightfastness, and is also free of fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners, and dyes.

Each colour’s formula reflects the quality of the pigment: colours with a higher pigment load will dry to a more opaque, matte finish, whereas colours that are more reactive and require a lighter pigment load will tend to dry with a glossier, more transparent finish. The gloss of each colour will vary, as GOLDEN Heavy Body colours contain no matting agents.

94 of the 101 colours within the line are considered excellent in lightfastness (the ability to withstand color change due to exposure to light). The remaining 7, the two Naphthols, Hansa Yellow Light, Permanent Green Light, Dioxazine Purple, Green Gold, and Primary Yellow, are rated very good for lightfastness.

The Cadmium colours are especially sensitive to the combination of light and moisture, so outdoor use of these colours should be avoided.

Set contains: 6 × 22 ml: Naphthol Red Light, Hansa Yellow Medium, Ultramarine Blue, Permanent Green Light, Mars Black, Titanium White
