This Clairefontaine Pastelmat paper gives your artwork longevity without the need to use fixative and is a true innovation with its smooth cork grain surface.

Multiple layers of colours, flat tints, precise details, or even delicate and transparent veils are easy to achieve due to the characteristic 'fixing' of this paper. Due to its rigidity, weight, non-acidity, as well as light resistance this paper guarantees good conservation of work.

These exquisite pads include 12 sheets of 360gsm acid free paper, each protected by a crystal insert. Each pad includes the Light and Dark Colours: three sheets each of Wine, Sand, Dark Blue and Light Blue

Pastelmat may be slightly curved: this is normal and part of the manufacturing process.

    Hi June,

    The Clairefontaine Pastelmat paper offers a smooth but grippy surface making it perfect for pastels without the need for a fixative.

    The first layers are more difficult to blend as they are gripped to the surface. A little blending can be achieved but this takes some effort. subsequent layers of pastel become much easier to soften and blend.

    If you would like to see these in action then you can go here and watch the Jeremy Ford pastel workshops. Jeremy is a great advocate for Pastelmat paper and you can judge how easy it is to blend.

    I hope this helps.
