Recently I've been feeling that I need a wider range of really dark colours, especially for backgrounds in books like Kwiaty Baroku. This set of 20 pastels looked to fit the bill.
|Kwiaty Baroku - Raw Umber extra dark in the background|
Here is what the pack looks like -
With PanPastels, each pastel colour comes in its own circular pan. These pans can screw on top of each other or you can get palette trays to hold varying numbers of pans, which is useful for colours that you use more often.
Here are the 20 pans that come in this set - a good range of browns, greys, blues, greens, yellows, reds and a purple. Impressive as it's just about every shade of dark colour you could need.
Here are the names and numbers of the colours in the set -
This is what the pans look like screwed together, with various foam applicator pads in the bottom compartment. Very nifty storage idea if a tiny bit fiddly to get screwed on straight.
Here are the various applicators and foam pads that come with this set. I have to say that I usually use cotton buds and cotton balls, largely out of habit. The foam pieces range from quite large to much smaller ones for getting into tighter spaces.
I suggest that you go to the PanPastel website to find tutorials on how to use the pastels. Over the Christmas break I'll be checking out some techniques for blending shades, but for now I'm very happy with this pack and the range of colours they include.
There is a vast range of packs covering various shades and colours and most are available to buy as individual pans. Start with the links below and go browsing. Goodness, I've just noticed a skin tones set!
