Sennelier Artist's Quality Oil Pastel Iridescent Set

The Sennelier Iridescent Set is available in either of 6 or 12 Oil Pastels, both selections from the iridescent colours in the range (The Sennelier Iridescent Set of 12 Pastels also contains black and white non-iridescent colours). In 1949 Parisian Painter Henri Goetz approached Henri Sennelier the famous artist materials manufacturer about creating a wax colour stick for his friend, Pablo Picasso. Picasso, a longtime Sennelier customer and a frequent visitor to their store across the street from the Louvre Museum was looking for a medium that could be used freely on a variety of surfaces without fading or cracking. Their collaboration produced the incomparable Sennelier Oil Pastels.

Details

Sennelier Oil Pastels have a creamy texture and are mixed with inert pigments and a neutral pH wax, possesing extraordinarily high pigment content and offering great brightness. Unlike oil sticks, oil pastels do not ever completely dry and remain heat sensitive. It is therefore recommended that oil pastel works are sealed with oil pastel fixative. Each standard oil pastel is approximately 6.8cm in length and 1cm in diameter.
