Pastel mat is a new type of paper specially designed for using dry pastels. It has a fixing power that allows pastel after pastel to be applied without saturation, resulting in significantly less pastel powder coming off. This means that no fixative is needed to hold the pastel in place.The surface of Pastelmat is soft and makes fuzzifying with your fingers much more pleasant than with other types of paper. It is also acid-free and resistant to erasers and moisture, so the paper retains its properties and is not easily damaged.
Pastel mat is made of thick card paper with fine cellulose particles attached to the surface. Each sheet in the block is protected by a sheet of satin greaseproof paper to keep the paper in good condition. It is available in four different colours: beige, sand, sanguine and dark grey. These colours offer different backgrounds for pastel drawings and allow you to create different effects.
Overall, Pastelmat is a great option for artists looking for a paper suitable for dry pastel. Its fixing power, soft surface and durability make it a good choice for beginners and experienced artists alike.
