Description

The origin of Sennelier Oil Pastels, at the request of Pablo Picasso himself, is a good indication of the level of quality here. Gustave Sennelier created them in 1949 when the great man requested intense colours that he could use on as many surfaces as possible. 

  • As it turned out, Sennelier Oil Pastels also bring a lot more besides, not least a luxurious lipstick-creamy texture and extremely high pigmentation that provides excellent coverage and is fully lightfast.
  • You can apply Sennelier Oil Pastels direct or blend them with your finger or cloth, and you can also dilute them with turpentine and blend them with a brush.

These cardboard-sleeved sets come in a number of sizes from introductory 12s upwards.

24th July 2016 Reviewed by Dawn Clarke I use this medium depending on the subject being studied. If it is a life drawing I might take a sensitive approach with the pastel using it gently. I can if needed make bold marks with it. Blending can be made easier with the pastel made for this, but one can also use other tools, such as the neutral oil bar, wax pencils or just rubbing with finger.
The pastel can also be used with mixed medium process. Water based mediums go well with the oil pastels. A wash over marks made with the pastel is very effective.

16th July 2016 Reviewed by Gillian Bush Brilliant value and a massive selection of colours to choose from. Artist quality and goes on like a dream. Lovely creamy sticks that provide vivid, easy to control colour.
All the sticks were in perfect condition when they got to me, none cracked or broken, and very well packed in individual foam dividers.

12th January 2016 Reviewed by Nadine Clark Ordered in error - returned. I already have a small box of Sennelier Oil Pastels and they are amazing! So smooth to use but not so good for art journaling because they are difficult to fix and therefore smudge/transfer.

29th September 2013 Reviewed by Jo Warwick I use Sennelier oil pastels for painting on Canvas. Usually as a top layer as they are soft and creamy. They are artists quality and provide an excellent colour range and are lightfast. I am an amateur artist - I think they are too soft for the very young but they do blend very well and can be spread with a finger or with a solvent and brush. Although they never dry completely Sennelier make a very good sealant which does harden and protect the surface. A great product.
