Pastelbord is an exquisite sanded surface for both wet and dry pastel painting. Hand-applied, the kaolin clay ground textured with fine marble dust granules is perfect for soft or oil pastels, and pastel pencils. Pastels go on smooth, blend beautifully, and colors stay rich and vibrant while holding tight to the surface, layer after layer. To rework an area simply wash with water. Not only is Pastelbord great for pastels, but it's also amazing with acrylics, oils, watercolors, gouache and charcoal. With acrylics, Pastelbord allows smooth blending and washes simply unimaginable on canvas!
