The perfect oil pastel set for young artists! The Faber-Castell 12 count oil pastel set features bright, opaque colors and smooth textures - perfect for a young artist graduating from crayons. Oil pastels are great for mixed media! Pair Faber-Castell oil pastels with Watercolor connector paints or Fizzy Paints to create awesome "resist" effects. These oil pastels are easy to blend and can be smoothed or thinned with baby oil. Store your oil pastels in a handy, travel friendly plastic carrying case that also includes a blending, shading and tinting guide to help your young artist learn new art techniques! Designed with young artists in mind, these oil pastels are hexagonal in shape which keeps them from rolling off the desk or table. Faber-Castell Oil Pastels are non-toxic, acid free and conform to ASTM D-4236. Recommended for ages 5+.
