Sennelier Oil Pastels were especially made for Pablo Picasso, who was looking for a medium that could be used freely on a variety of surfaces without fading or cracking. The sticks have a lipstick-like consistency with rich colors that have outstanding opacity and lightfastness. With extreme ease of application, the top quality pigments may be thinned with turpentine and worked with a brush. Ground with a special binding medium and mixed with mineral wax, these oil pastels have a creamy texture that invites broad strokes and freedom of expression.
Set of 12 introductory colors includes: White, Pale Blue, Lemon Yellow, Black, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Cinnabar Green Yellow, Green Medium, Mandarin, Delft Blue, Permanent Intense Red, French Ultramarine Blue.
Packaged in a cardboard box, with each oil pastel stick nestled in a foam insert.
