How to use Sofft applicators with Pan Pastels

As I explained last month, working with applicators (Soffts) with Pan Pastels allows for the feeling that you are painting with dry paint as opposed to drawing with sticks of pastels. Don’t forget that Pan Pastels, as opposed to standard soft pastels, cannot be blended with the fingers.

I chose to work on Ampersand Pastel Board in grey. These are clay and gesso-coated hardboard panels with a granular marble dust finish, which is comparable to a sanded pastel paper, except more durable and more versatile. The coating is pH neutral and non-yellowing thus making it a truly permanent museum-quality surface. Pan Pastels will work on almost any surface, from encaustic board to quite rough textured pastel paper, but the Ampersand Pastel Board is very easy to work on and I like the high-quality finish.
