Our Standard Pastel Panel thickness is now 1/4" (6mm). They are very rigid, but they have sufficient flexibility to resist warping and cracking.
Each panel is made-to-measure, in any size rectangle or square that you request. Fractions of an inch are no problem. (Note: when calculating prices for fractional sizes, round all linear measurements UP to the nearest inch before multiplying: For example, a 6 ¼" x 10" panel is priced as 7" x 10" [70 sq. in.].) The price list shows some common sizes, as well as size ranges in which you can locate any sizes that are not listed. My current size limit is 48" x 96"*. Panels over 35" x 45" usually require a crating fee, and large panels which are over 45" in both length and width need especially elaborate crating.
( * - Subject to change. )
Pastel Panels are currently available in two finishes. Both finishes have a fibrous nap and, viewed under magnification, an intricate, dense pattern of tiny fissures. Their complex surfaces hold tremendous loads of color, similar to an actual sandpaper, but softer. The panels are non-absorbent; try them for wet techniques with water, mixed media, oil, or oil pastel. Or try using a brush with soft pastel and alcohol!
Our pastel panel surfaces, improved in 2004, are a bit smoother, yet hold more color, than our older versions.
All panels are made-to-order. Production time varies, but is usually about 1-2 weeks.
All prices are as shown on the price list. No quantity breaks or discounts apply unless specifically advertised.
Most orders ship via UPS. Shipping charges, usually 5 - 10% of the order, vary greatly depending on size, distance, number of pieces per package, etc. I will quote you a shipping charge before you send your check! (NOTE: Large sizes may incur a crating charge.)
Orders of less than $50.00 (tax and shipping not incl.) will incur a Minimum Order Charge of $8.00. (Waived on first order.)
All panels are custom made and ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Please try a small size for suitability before placing a large order or committing to a commission!
When possible, please place your order using our On Line order form.
You may also order by phone, fax, mail, or email.
