|Sennelier oil pastels were developed in 1949 specifically for Pable Picasso. Picasso was looking for a pastel with intense colour that could be applied directly to a number of surfaces.|
Sennelier make their Oil Pastels with a unique combination of non aggressive oils and waxes so they can be used on almost any surface without cracking. All colours are 100% lightfast. Unlike oil sticks, oil pastels don't become completely dry and remain heat sensitive. It is therefore recommended that oil pastel fixative is used with Sennelier oil pastels.
