In 1949 Pablo Picasso was searching for a new type of medium. He wanted a pastel with an intense colour that could be applied directly and freely to almost any surface that he wished. With that in mind he approached Sennelier for help. They duly created what is probably the only true artist quality oil pastel in the world.
With a huge range of 120 colours Sennelier oil pastels have a soft creamy consistency that delivers all the intensity and vibrancy of conventional oil colours. However, unlike oil colours, the unique processes and materials used to make the oil pastels means they can used on almost any surface, including paper, without cracking or effecting the substrate.
The oil pastels are also 100% lightfast, so your work will stay rich and full of vitality, whether you're just a beginner...or one of the world's most celebrated artists
