The key components of the oil pastel cakes are waxes and white clay (kaolins). These components give the oil pastels, with the addition of other additives, unsurpassable characteristics such as a silky stroke on paper. The colours are created by rich, top quality and perfectly dispersed pigments, carefully selected and purchased from renowned manufacturers around the world. Their light permanency and dosed concentration also has an impact on the final durability of the painter’s artwork. Due to this reason a high concentration of colour pigment dosing is prescribed for this product throughout its colour range.
The perfect mixture of all of these components gives the oil pastels an unmistakable smoothness and fineness. A high volume of oily ingredients results in a great stroke of the pastels. The application of a thicker layer and overlapping of tones enables mutual mixing, and consequently the creation of new colour tones, similarly as with oil or tempera colours. This can be enhanced by turpentine. Artworks created with this technique are more similar to oil paintings, they are lightfast and very resistant. The scratching technique is an option as well.
Oil pastels 10 mm in diameter and 75 mm long represent a standard sized tool for artists. Unwrapped pastels can be also used flat to cover large areas. No component used in production contains toxic or otherwise harmful substances and the final product is therefore suitable for all age categories.
