Exceptionally smooth and creamy, these pastels are the ultimate in the combination of blending power and opacity. The 110x20mm diameter pastels will work well on a variety of substrates, from paper and gessoed boards through to metal plates and glass. Whilst the basic range is 110 colours. All pastels now feature the new easy ‘tear down’ perforated wrapper.
The Sennelier oil pastel is a product that makes 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 oxidise 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 unctuousness 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, thus providing them with a high colouring and covering potential, excellent brightness and a high degree of light stability (with the exception of metallic and fluorescent shades).
