Pentel Arts Oil Pastels are brilliant fade-resistant colours. Creamy softness makes pastels easy to lay down and produce varying textures. Slow drying time means you can work on a piece for several weeks. Ideal for most paper types (including pastel, water colour, cartridge, craft, etc.) as well as canvas, oil and acrylic boards. Great for use in conjunction with watercolours, oil paints and soft pastels.
