Sennelier Artists' Oil Pastels - Assorted Colours - Set of 12

In 1949, Henri Sennelier started developing a range of artists' quality pastels for the famous cubist Pablo Picasso. Picasso was looking for a pastel with intense colour that could be applied directly and freely to a wide variety of surfaces. As a result, Sennelier created an oil pastel with a soft, creamy quality with all the intensity and vibrancy of conventional oil colours.

Unlike oil colours, Sennelier oil pastels are made using a unique combination of non-aggressive oils and waxes so they can be used on almost any surface—including paper—without cracking or effecting the substrate.

As oil pastels do not ever completely dry and remain heat sensitive, it is recommended that oil pastel works are sealed with an oil pastel fixative.

All colours are 100% lightfast.

Also available as a Set of 24 and a Set of 72.
