Sofft® Tools

Draw, paint and blend like never before

The Sofft range is a new generation of tools and applicators for artists and crafters, created by artists for artists.

Sofft Tools were specifically developed for use with PanPastels®, and can also be used with most water-based art and craft materials to create a variety of exciting new techniques, marks and effects. Finished effects are different to brushes as the brush stroke is eliminated.

Each product in the Sofft range was developed in our laboratory, and extensively tested and re-tested in our art studio; resulting in a selection of unique professional artists’ quality tools.

Sofft products are versatile, inexpensive and can be re-used several times.
