Oil Pastels with high colour and coverage, excellent brightness, made with top quality pigments, an extremely pure synthetic binding medium and mineral wax.

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 use.

PDF Colour Chart (Full range of 120 colours).

Used on their own or ideal for mixed media works they can be used on a multitude of surfaces and can be re-worked with solvents, brushes or painting knives.

The pigments are ground with an inert, non-siccative (non-drying) binding medium that doesn't oxidise and that has no effect upon either film stability or surface. This base is then mixed with neutral pH wax.

 

 

The pastels have a high degree of light stability (with the exception of metallic and fluorescent shades).

Developed in response to a request by Pablo Picasso, (a long-time Sennelier customer and a frequent visitor to their store across the street from the Louvre museum), who was looking for a medium that could be used freely on a variety of surfaces without fading or cracking.

In 1949, Parisian painter Henri GOETZ approached SENNELIER , about creating a wax colour stick for his friend PICASSO. 

Their collaboration produced the incomparable SENNELIER oil pastels. Originally available in a palette of classic hues, the colour selection was expanded with the addition of metallic and iridescent hues.
