Sennelier Oil Pastels Wooden Box - Set of 50 Standard Size Sticks

3 items left

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.

This set of 50 Standard-Size Oil Pastels is an extensive collection of colours, great for depicting a wide variety of subjects. The set is contained in an attractive, convenient wooden box, with a foam lining for the protection of the pastels.

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.
