The Sofft® range of art tools is a new generation of tools and applicators for artists and crafters. Sofft® Tools were specifically designed for use with PanPastel® colours and can also be used with most water-based art & craft materials to create exciting new techniques, marks and effects.

Sofft® Covers are sized specifically for the use with Sofft® Knives and Shapers. They transform Knives and Shapers into absorbent tools, capable of carrying and releasing colour and material in a unique way. These micropore sponges are semi-absorbent and can be used several times. 

Sofft® Knives have transformed the traditional painting knife into a multi-use and absorbent applicator for art and craft techniques. When used with Sofft® Covers, these inexpensive tools function like a cross between a brush and a knife.

Sofft® Shapers are indispensable art and craft tools suited for a variety of applications either with or without Sofft® Covers. Their flexible silicone tips make them versatile and absorbent when used in conjunction with Sofft® Covers. 


Unique features of our product:

Micropore Sponge; This non-abrasive, semi-absorbent material is specially formulated to hold and release just the right amount of colour for smooth, uniform results. 

Reusable; Sofft® Sponges and Covers can be re-used several times (the number of times depends on the type of colour and surface being used).
