Clairefontaine Pastelmat | Pastel Paper
Clairefontaine PASTELMAT® is a premium card surface (360gsm / 170lb) specially developed for pastel artists. Its unique velvety surface, made from a fine coating of cellulose fibers, has the ability to grab and hold multiple layers of even the softest pastels.
PASTELMAT® significantly reduces the need for fixative, which means that colors remain vibrant and fresh once applied. It has the added bonus of being gentle on both fingers and blending tools. It is acid free and lightfast.
PASTELMAT® is ideal for use with all dry media – soft pastel sticks, PanPastel, pencils & charcoal. It is also water resistant which means that it can also be used with wet media – such as acrylics and watercolour paints for washes and mixed media techniques.
