Sennelier Oil Pastels Set of 12 introductory Colours

Set of 12 Colours
In 1949 Sennelier started developing a range of artists quality pastels for the famous artist Pablo Picasso. Picasso was looking for a pastel with intense colour that could be applied directly and freely to a wide variety of surfaces..The Sennelier oil pastel is a product that makes use of the components used in all Sennelier colours: top quality pigments, an extremely pure synthetic binding medium and mineral wax. The pigments are ground with an inert, non-siccative binding medium that does not oxidise and that has no effect upon either film stability or surface. This base is then mixed with wax (neutral pH). The balance of this mix provides Sennelier oil pastels with a unique creamy texture that allows for a great deal of freedom in expression. Available in sets or wooden boxes.
