Oil Pastels

oil pastels as a drawing medium are highly versatile and very easy to carry with you. High quality oil pastels are smooth and buttery in texture, gliding over the paper with ease. Great detail and effect can be achieved with oil pastels. Block, matt colour is quickly produced, other colours added on top or mixed talso o get the desired shading.  Blending can be done with the finger but a cotton bud with Artists white spirit is an excellent way to achieve this. Oil pastels can be layered to give a slightly raised, impasto effect. 

Sennelier has designed an excellent paper for oil pastels. Coated for optimum adhesion and inter-leaved with glassine, a non-stick paper to ensure your work is protected
