A top-quality product, Sennelier's oil pastels are steeped in history, and have been used by modern masters including Pablo Picasso!
Classic hues and a selection of unique shades are available, including a great range of greys, required for a balanced palette. Sennelier oil pastels are products that make use of the components used in all Sennelier colours: top quality pigments, an extremely pure synthetic binding medium and mineral wax. The pigments are ground with an inert, non-siccative binding medium that does not oxidize and that has no effect upon either film stability or surface. This base is then mixed with wax (neutral pH). The balance of this mix provides Sennelier oil pastels with a unique smoothness and a creamy texture that allows for a great deal of freedom in pictorial expression.
The Sennelier oil pastels possess an extraordinarily high pigment content, providing them with saturated colour and excellent coverage, excellent brightness and a high degree of light stability (with the exception of metallic and fluorescent shades).
The Oil Pastel range includes 110 classic colours and 10 iridescent colours.
Sennelier's Standard Oil pastels are 3/8" in diameter and 2 1/2" long
