The Sennelier Oil Pastel 24 Stick Portrait Set includes a broad selection of oil pastels in a spectrum of colours ideal for portrait artwork. This set includes the following colours:
Sennelier Oil Pastels have a prestigious history - originally created by Henri Sennelier in collaboration with Heri Goetz who requested a wax colour stick for his friend Pablo Picasso. They are a professional grade oil pastel made from top quality pigments, extremely pure synthetic binding medium and mineral wax. During their manufacture, pigments are ground with inert, non-siccative binding that does not oxidise - meaning they do not affect either film stability or surface. These pastels are manufactured with an exceptionally high pigment content which gives them excellent coverage and vibrant colour. With the exception of metallic and fluorescent shades, all Sennelier Oil Pastels offer a high degree of lightfastness.
Very pleased with these oil pastels. Good strong coverage and great to work in. Christine Mears (Broadstairs, United Kingdom) on 19 May 2022
