Metallic Pan Pastels

I purchased four of the six Pan Pastel Metallic colours from Event city last Thursday they are:


Rich Gold



Thought i would see how they perform using a sheet of Crafters Companion Centura Pearl 300gsm snow white with a hint of silver card stock.

The card stock has two sides, pearl and  plain. I tried the Pastels on both sides to see what the difference would be like.

The above side is the plain side, the Pastels have been applied to the bottom half of the page using a Sofft flat head spatula and are lovely and sparkly.  They were also applied through a stencil and look really good together.  Top right of the card stock have mixed the Pastels with water and top left of the card stock have mixed with Paper Artsy Fresco paint Snowflake, this really shows how versatile they are.

The Pastels mixed with the Fresco Snowflake paint looks like they could possibly work as skin tones if less metallic powder was added.

The other side is the pearl side and this enhances the metallic colours even more. Didn’t use the Pastels mixed with the Fresco paint but I hope you can see the slight difference from one side to the other.

Hoping you can see how lovely the Metallic Pan Pastels are.

Thanks for dropping bySmile

  2. Hi MOH :D Thank you for the lowdown on these metallic Pan Pastels, they look great! I always worry that metallics are a bit transparent but here and mixed with water that doesn't seem to be the case! Have a great weekend, :D Gay x
