Sennelier Artist's Quality Oil Pastel Wooden Box

Sennelier's Wooden Box Sets are available in collections of 36, 50 and 120 assorted Oil Pastels carefully selected from across the extensive colour range and contained in varnished wooden boxes with foam dividers for safe storage. 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.
