Sennelier Extra Soft Pastels A L'Ecu

Sennelier Extra Soft Pastels A L'EcuIt took over three years at the end of the nineteenth century, to formulate the Sennelier range of Extra Soft Pastels a l'ecu. Although the range has evolved over the years the heart of the design remains unchanged.  Manufactured with high quality, pure pigments finely ground with a natural binder and air dried for the perfect pastel.

Sennelier Oil Pastels

Sennelier Oil PastelsSennelier 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.
