Sennelier Oil Pastel Set of 36 colours in a beautiful hand-made wooden box with dovetail corners and brass fittings.
The European maple boxes are stained and lacquered.
Exceptionally smooth and creamy, these pastels are the ultimate in the combination of blending power and opacity.
These pastels will work well on a variety of substrates, from paper and gessoed boards, through to metal plates and glass.
While the basic range is 110 colours, there are many new colours which include iridescent, pearlescent and metallic tones. They all offer outstanding lightfastness except for the fluorescents.
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).
