Quick Overview

Clairefontaine Pastelmat 12 Sheet Pad No4 - 3 sheets each: Wine, Dark Blue, Light Blue, Sand (24 x 30 cm) 9.5 x 12 inches

Clairefontaine developed Pastelmat to meet the specific expectations of the most demanding pastel artists. This 170 lb (360 gsm) card is also an ideal surface for pencil and charcoal.

Pastelmat's single and original surface is a true innovation that combines the advantages of two traditional papers. The fine particles are sufficiently well-fixed for a smooth surface and comfort of use, and the smoothness of the cork grain in the adhesive ensures longevity.

The character "fixing" of this surface is so extraordinary that the positioning of multiple layers of pastels, and the realization of flat tints, precise details, or delicate and transparent veils are easily achieved.

The use of fixative is not necessary with Pastelmat. The rigidity, weight, and non-acidity, as well as the paper's light-resistance, guarantee conservation of your artwork. However, it is recommended that a sheet of acid-free translucent paper be placed over finished artworks created on Pastelmat.

  • Pastelmat paper gives your artwork longevity without the need for fixative
  • Precise details, or even delicate & transparent veils are easy to achieve with Pastelmat
  • Easy to frame
  • Acid free

PASTELMAT® is a premium card surface (360gsm / 170lb) specially developed for pastelists. Its unique velvety surface, made from a fine coating of cellulose fibers, has the ability to grab and hold multiple layers of even the softest pastels.

PASTELMAT® significantly reduces the need for fixative, which means that colours remain vibrant and fresh once applied. It has the added bonus of being gentle on both fingers and blending tools. It is acid free and lightfast.

PASTELMAT® is ideal for use with all dry media - pastel sticks, PanPastel, pencils and charcoal. It is also water resistant which means that it can be used with wet media – such as acrylics and watercolour for washes and mixed media techniques.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers.  I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much.   I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies.  We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary.   You have made our lives so much simpler.   I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends. 

Thank you again.
I will be back.

I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

Great job!

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!

I hope I’ll be able to  broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J

Take care
