More about Oil and Soft Pastels
Oil pastels are a crayon-like art medium with unique qualities. They have vibrant bright colors, versatile components, and a creamy consistency. Oil pastels inspire artists to push their creative boundaries and explore the different styles of art that they have to offer.
Faber-Castell Oil Pastel Crayons set the standard for beginner or professional art supplies alike. On a beginner level, you can use oil pastels by simply drawing or blending with your fingers. Oil pastels are very soft so it is easy to blend with your finger or white spirit. Faber-Castell Oil Pastel Crayons are pigment packed to guarantee a smooth color laydown for rich, vibrant pastel effects.
Faber-Castell Soft pastels are of great quality and are acid-free and pigment-based. Each vibrant colour sticks to the surface of your paper whereas dye-based pastel colors will sink into your paper. These soft pastels come in a tray which separates each pastel so that they don’t break or don’t end up rubbing together. These soft pastels allow artists to achieve three different line widths with their rectangular shape. You can use a knife cutter against the pastel to create a powder.
