Artist Comment
Sennelier makes the ideal oil pastel. As an oil pastels artist, I have been using Sennelier oil pastels almost ever since I discovered them. But what makes them so special and so unique?

The following is a list of reasons to use Sennelier Oil Pastels:

  • Creamy and soft - unlike cheaper brands of oil pastels which are more like hard, wax crayons.
  • Glides smoothly across surfaces.
  • Great for blending and layering.
  • Vibrant Colors. The colors are vibrant, lustrous and brilliant.
  • Rich pigment content.
The only drawback to Sennelier would be the expense of them. But that is true of any artist-quality medium, whether that is in painting or drawing or pastels.

You get what you pay for.
And when you pay extra to use Sennelier, it is worth it.
