New PanPastel Book!

A new PanPastel Book has been launched in Germany! The book – by painter Nicole Menz – contains many different PanPastel painting projects with lots of step-by-step images. While it is available only in German at the moment we are working with the publisher to make it available in English (& hopefully other languages) soon. We’ll be sharing more details of the book and it’s availability in other languages soon. Watch this space!

Here is the link for the book in German: PanPastel Book.
