The Sennelier Oil Pastel range of large 5" length pastels come in a range of 120 colours.
Each pastel is the equivalent of 7 standard pastels.
The Artist Quality Oil Pastel from Sennelier has a soft creamy quality with all the intensity and vibrancy of conventional oil colours.
The Sennelier Oil Pastel was developed in 1949 for Picasso. Picasso was looking for a intense colour that could be applied directly and freely to a wide variety of surfaces.
Sennelier Oil Pastels are made using a unique combination of oils and waxes so that they can be used on almost any surface, including paper without cracking or effecting the substrate.
Unlike oil sticks, oil pastels do not ever completely dry and remain heat sensitive because they are made using a unique blend of natural waxes. It is therefore recommended that oil pastel works are sealed with oil pastel fixative.
