Anyone ever use this. Looks promising, but at the $40 USD price tag, I'm a little worried.

I went to my Happy Place, but it was closed for renovations.
I don't know Ed, if you go to an artist store you can find chalks of various shades that will work for earth, rust, concrete, etc. for about 3 to 4 bucks a piece.
Re: PanPastel
About three or four of our members (Scale Rails of Southwest Florida) have started using the powders on buildings and cars. They really like them. They have been buying the larger round stackable containers mostly on e-bay.
I do know that Roger Nicholls, who built this one and showed it at TVNAM last Saturday, did the clouds and the vapour trails with white chalk pastels, although I don't know where they came from - presumably an art shop


Wow, he did a great job on the sky!! I like the airline contrail.
Big fan of PanPastels. Bought a good variety of grays, blacks, rusts a few years ago with some Christmas money, bought some cheap makeup brushes and wha la, I'm in the weathering business. I tend to weather with diluted acrylic paints and washes first to get some basic ideas on how I want something to go, then get out my PanPastels. Once I like what I've done (and that's sort of the beauty of the medium, you can wipe, blend and erode the coverage), I hit the model with Testor's Dullcote. I then may make some small additions and hit it with another blast of Dullcote to seal the work. I think I've only made a small dent in any color in about 5 years, and don't ever plan on buying replacements.

I have been using them for the last year or so and I really like them.
