Created in the 1940s in collaboration with Picasso these creamy, lipstick-like pastels are rich in pigment, cover well, and have outstanding opacity and lightfastness. They may be thinned with turpentine and worked with a brush, are acid-free and can be applied to any surface. Modern Sennelier Oil Pastels have 20 percent large diameter than the original stick and are available in a larger size called “Grand”, which is the equivalent of 8 regular size sticks.
The Large Grand Oil Pastel was conceived through extensive artist input and is considered to be the most user-friendly size. Roughly eight times the size of the original oil pastel, it is large enough for layering yet small enough for detail work.
