Intensive and brilliant colours: That's what oil pastel crayons are standing for. Their luminosity is owed to highly concentrated pigments. The more layers of paint you put on top of each other, the more intense the result becomes. Oil pastels are suitable for encaustic, various pastel and scraping techniques. Depending on the desired artistic effect, you can use your finger to smudge or blend them with a paint brush and turpentine.
