PanPastel Colors are professional grade soft pastel colors packed in a unique pan format (cake-like) so that they can be mixed and applied like paint. They are very low dust for a cleaner working environment.

All 80 PanPastel Colors are made using a unique manufacturing process requiring minimal binder and fillers, resulting in rich, ultra soft and low dust formulations.

Only professional artists’ grade pigments are used for the most concentrated colors possible. The colors have excellent lightfastness and are fully erasable.

Each pan contains 40%* more material than the average pastel stick, and yields approx. 4-5 times more coverage than sticks.

  2. I think I’d like to try the pan pastels as a soft base color and t hen add detailed line drawings on top, trying to see how realistic I can make the drawings. To me, working with these pastels would be like using powdered makeup on my face, layering and layering.

  71. Virginia Hampson aka Wirg says:

    I love how vibrant PanPastels look and I’d like to see how they go after stamping with a clear inkpad to make backgrounds and yes well, resist effects. I do not have any as yet but I’m sure I’d probably become quite ‘addicted’ to them if I did have some.

  82. I like Nat’s technique with embossing powder and sponging the pan pastel over the stamped image.

  84. PanPastel looks like an awesome product, would love to give blending them a go, and of course try the resist technique.

  85. I’d like to use Pan Pastels with resist. Would try it on fabric.

  86. I like using it with versamark, but have also found a new technique with gesso and PP. Got to give that a go still, to refine it.

    I’d like to try the gesso texture Nathalie demonstrated and try using some of my rubber stamps with PanPAstels.

  88. Oww, I saw all the techniques in this jumpstart with Pan Pastels so far, and would like to try them all of course, but my favorite must be resist technique by Dina Wakley with the stamps. But I also really do love to try them with the gesso Texture By Nathalie.

I already have the versamark pen and would definitely try the resist technique. Thanks again for the wonderful tutorial and the chance to win.

  137. I saw the highlights of Donna Downey’s video tutorial, the one with the heart canvas. All that texture! I would love to try that. Unfortunately Pan Pastels are nowhere to be found in South Africa and very expensive to import. (hint hint) 😉

  138. I love these gorgeous pastels, they are truly unique and so pigmented. I love also the technique with versamark ink, I have a versamark brush pen – I got to try it out with the Pan Pastels. They are so soft and wonderful in backgrounds too, blending in each other. They have such an amazing range of use. ♥ Molding Paste loves Pan Pastels on top I have noticed 😀

  147. Hi there, i would like to try the resist technique and also use stencils and to make mixed color backgrounds… I think I will really enjoy working with pan pastels

  176. leann lindeman says:

  178. I lost my chalks to a flood this summer, but would love to start in again with these Pan Pastels instead! So creamy looking! I’d love to try the layering Nat was talking about by starting with the Pan Pastels and then adding Wax bars on top for a cool effect!

    I don’t have any pan pastels, so I don’t know yet for which technique I want to use it.
    Greetings, Yvon

  210. I have heard over and over how wonderful Pan Pastels and I would love to use them with stamps and stencils but they are a bit more expensive than I can afford. Winning them would be so awesome!!! Thanks for the chance!!!

  211. Karen Borusiewicz says:

    resist technique first…. but then… stencil, watercolor, with different mediums. FUN!

  212. I love the great effect with versamark ink. I would like to try it!!!

  213. I love Pan Pastels! Especially with stamping with versamark.

  214. Valerie Bullock says:

    I have been eyeing the Pan Pastels for quite some time now and would have to say that I am particularly intrigued by the possibility of using them with watercolors.

  215. I love all the technics. I want to try all of them

  216. I have never tried Pan Pastels. I would like to try it with stencils. Judith, Texas

  217. I really enjoyed the technique with watermark ink, but I would also try them trough stencil and just painting with them.

  218. I have been mostly interested in using them for blending and shading, but the watermark ink technique is very intriguing!

  219. the resist technique is really great

  220. Dina Wakley’s resist technique looked like so much fun. Would love to use panpastels and try this.

  221. My favourite technique was the resist that Dina Wakley did using the resist stamp pad and then going over it with pan pastels.

  222. Oh, every resist technique is irresistible! But then, every blending, shading, colouring technique is too, so… I loooove PanPastels!

  223. I love Pan pastel. So I cross my fingers that I win the package. Thanks!

  224. Love the PanPastels over watermark ink!

  225. I would love to try them as a resist technique. I make a lot of cards and I think they would be fabulous for backgrounds, before I add my coloured stamp!

  226. I liked seeing PanPastel used over embossed stamps, and I love seeing the blending and big swoops of color to get a lovely background. This is a fantastic giveaway!

  227. i’d like to use them to add shading, depth, and texture, or blended into color. 🙂

  228. I don’t have a specific plan, but would most likely try them on my stamped projects (for scrapbooking) over an embossed image. They certainly look fun!

  229. I would love to use this beautiful panpastels with some stencils. Briljant combination.

  230. I’d love to use PanPastels over watermark resist ink that I’ve stamped onto a journal page, just like Dina did in her vid. Blending looked sooo easy!

  231. rozalia hughes says:

    Loved their use by Dina and Nat and really want to try them with stencils.

  232. I have seen these are here on Jumpstart, I can not wait to play with it!

  233. Rianne Schellekens says:

    A friend of mine is realy in love with panpastel and makes beautiful things. I’ve never tried them, so I would like to try them out

  234. Kathy Trush says:

    Pan Pastels is one of my favorite products demoed in this years Jump Start. I would love to try the resist technique and with stencils for the art journal I am starting this year.

  235. I have been wanting to try the Pan Pastel’s but right now money is tight for me ..I think that it would be fun to make Art journal cover with stencils and the Pan Pastel’s ..

  236. Probably I like all the techniques Panpastel because colors are incredible. In general use for backgrounds with stencils.

  237. Claire Standish says:

    I’ve never used Pan Pastels, but I think the colors and textures look beautiful! Would love to experiment with the techniques we’ve been seeing on these Jump Start videos! Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

  238. Hannie Hokke says:

    I like to use panpastels with a stencil!

  239. great product! I would use this with the resist technique.

  240. mlcain0202 says:

    What a great prize pack. I would use the Pan Pastels to make back grounds for my cards. What a great addition this would be to my craft room.

  241. tried and LOVE using pan pastel with resist ink!

  242. Next I would like to try the resist technique.

  243. I would like to trie it with a background created with gel medium and a mask.

  244. I think I would use PanPastels mostly for backgrounds, maybe for colouring images.

  245. I love the resist technique. The pan pastels are so smooth and give a lovely finish. I have yet to invest, but would love to win a set!

  246. Anna Fredriksson Kinnander says:

    Love to have it, so please give it to me.

  247. Todavía no he tenido la suerte de probar los pan pastel, así que cualquiera de las técnicas seria perfecta

  248. je ne peux pas choisir une technique … elles sont toutes super !!!

  249. The resist techniek but i think there is a lot more to discover!

  250. I have never used panpastels before and until this series I probably would not have worried about them as I do have plenty of pastels on my shelf, but after discovering they can be written over and they dont shed like other pastels I am so keen to try them. I love the softened look and the blendability of pastels but I hate the mess, the trying to get them fixed and the need for framing- and I just dont use the ones I have because of these issues.
    I will certainly be trying panpastels very soon and would love to win some and share them with my students.

  251. Judy Morgan says:

    I’d like to try the tissue paper and stencils as a beginner. Your colors are so vibrant, yet soft.

  252. I liked using the pan pastels with stencils and with stamped images using versamark.

  253. The technique that impressed me the most was from Dina Wakely the stamping with the watermark ink pad and then applying pan pastel over it. I loved the look of this tone-on-tone image. Would love to try that!

  254. liking much

  255. I’ve never tried these before would love to. Thanks

  256. The pan pastels look so beautiful when rubbed thru a stencil.
    They make the page just “POP” .

  257. I love the pan pastel colors! I love the way the colors so smoothly go through a stencil and bring such a pop to your page.

  258. The embossing and watermark technique look like fun. I never heard of PanPastels before CJS…learning a lot!

  259. conlin664 says:

    I liked Nat’s technique with the watermark pad and also Dina Wakley’s technique.

  260. First time I have seen these are here on Jumpstart, they look amazing! Would love to try them in a art journal with resist technique and some blending to create a background.

  261. I want to try PanPastels over watermark stamping. I have been very curious about and intimidated by this product and after seeing both Nat and Dina use it in such simple ways, I feel it’s something I can definitely step out and try.

  262. The resist techniques are intriguing.

  263. I have been eying these for a long time and have not tried them yet ! Anything with a stencil or resist involved intrigues me – I love mixed media so this is right up my alley!

  264. Tina Walker says:

    I love seeing how you can use Pan Pastels with watermark embossing ink – so awesome!

  265. I love the idea of using the panpastel over Golden’s crackle paste. I love that effect.

  266. Gayle Kush says:

    I would like to try rubbing the pan pastels over gesso or gel medium that has a texture.

  267. andrenesmith says:

    I like using the PanPastels with stencils and also the resist technique.

  268. I loved the resist with the watermark stamp pad/stamps, lovely.

  269. Heather O'Brien says:

    I’d love to emboss and resist with these.

  270. I love this product and would really like to try the resist technique. I have a lot of ideas swirling about in my head to try! Thank you for the opportunity to win. I love the Jumpstarts!

  271. No way can I pick just one.. I have the itch to try all the wonderful ideas of using this product.. but if I must choose it has to be the stamping resist that is first on my list to do 🙂 🙂

  272. I would love to try Pan Pastel, it’s look fantastic !!!

  273. I have yet to try pan pastels but I am really excited to do so! I can see how versatile they can be. I love layering so I love that you can stamp, write or whatever on top of them! I also like the soft look it provides. I really liked the emboss resist technique I have seen so far. So many possibilities!

Hurrah - you make me happy by leaving a comment! <3 Nat
