Sennelier Iridescent Oil Pastel Set of 12

Sennelier Iridescent Oil Pastel Set of 12

Exceptionally smooth and creamy, these pastels are the ultimate in the combination of blending power and opacity.

The 70x10mm diameter pastels will work well on a variety of substrates, from paper and gessoed boards, through to metal plates and glass.

All pastels now feature the new easy 'tear down' perforated wrapper.

Picasso, a long-time 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. Originally available in a palette of classic hues, the colour selection was expanded with the addition of metallic and iridescent hues.

The Sennelier oil pastels possess an extraordinarily high pigment content, thus providing them with a high colouring and covering potential, excellent brightness and a high degree of light stability (with the exception of metallic and fluorescent shades).
