If you are not familiar with PanPastels and how they can be used in Modelling to create some great effects read on...

The special qualities of PanPastel means that they can be mixed, layered and applied “dry” making them ideal for applying realistic weathering effects quickly. PanPastel Colours adhere well to most surfaces, yet can be removed easily if required.

  • Instant - no drying or preparation time required
  • Mixable - mix colors for an infinite number of custom colors & effect
  • Low dust - “no mess” alternative to powders and pastel sticks
  • Erasable - erase or clean off the color to change it (prior to fixing)
  • Ultra-fine - highly pigmented color formulations – it’s like using pure pigment
  • Realistic effects - doesn’t have a “painted on” appearance once applied
  • Compatible - with spray fixatives and other flat finishes

PanPastel Colours are easier to use than an airbrush for weathering, and are cleaner and quicker to use than pastel sticks and powders. The perfect solution for easy weathering effects in seconds!
