Oil Pastel Essentials
All you need to get started with oil pastel painting.
Paul Rubens Haiya oil pastels
This 48 set of oil pastels is perfect for beginners. These pastels are super soft and creamy and the colors are vibrant. They are student-quality but feel very high-end! If you want to start with oil pastels and get a feel for them, buy these!
Mungyo Gallery Soft Oil Pastels
I love these oil pastels because they are soft, affordable and they perform really consistently! They also have a wide range of colors.
Sennelier Oil Pastels
Sennelier oil pastels might be the best oil pastels out there right now (in my opinion). With their super soft lipstick-like consistency they are a dream to draw with. They are artist-grade and therefore lightfast and of high quality.
Gamblin Refined Linseed Oil
This painting medium is totally optional for working with oil pastels. It can be used to dilute the colors and to blend the pastels. When using a brush it’s almost like oil painting.
Sennelier Oil Pastel Fixative
Use this spray fixative to protect your oil pastel paintings from dust and smearing.
Royal Talens Varnish
A brush-on varnish to protect your oil pastel paintings from dust and smearing. The advantage this one has over the spray is that it doesn’t smell.
Canson XL Series Oil and Acrylic Paper
This paper is for oils and acrylics and therefore works great for oil pastels as well. It’s perfect for practicing and developing your oil pastel skills.
MUNGYO Professional Pastel Paper Pad
30 sheets of different toned paper for an interesting effect.
Sennelier Oil pastel Card
High-quality paper pad designed especially for oil pastels with protective interleaved glassine sheets.
Blending Stumps and Tortillions
These paper tortillions are perfect for blending oil pastels and creating small details.
MEEDEN Drawer Storage Box
A practical storage drawer to store and sort your oil pastels.
HWAWON Oil Pastel Wooden Holder
This wooden holder is perfect for holding your oil pastels making it super easy for you to switch between them when drawing.
