Quality Pigments guarantee Brilliant Lasting Results!

Holbein Artists’ Oil Pastels are soft, creamy, and fun to use. Endorsed by the Oil Pastel Association of America (OPA), Holbein Artists’ Oil Pastels move and feel like creamy chalk pastels minus the dust. The color lays down cleanly and evenly without stickiness. You can mix the rich colors dry or with linseed oil. They guarantee color consistency by tracking pigment distribution and purity. The colors never completely dry out because Holbein suspends the pigments in a mixture of wax and mineral oil. These pastels provide brilliant results on paper and canvas. The large square stick shape is easy to hold and less prone to breakage.

  • Each oil pastel measures 3/8" square × 2-3/4" long

Holbein Oil Pastels

Product Overview

Quality Pigments guarantee Brilliant Lasting Results!

Holbein Artists’ Oil Pastels are soft, creamy, and fun to use. Endorsed by the Oil Pastel Association of America (OPA), Holbein Artists’ Oil Pastels move and feel like creamy chalk pastels minus the dust. The color lays down cleanly and evenly without stickiness. You can mix the rich colors dry or with linseed oil.

Holbein's unique manufacturing process involves computers and machines from start to finish. They guarantee color consistency by tracking pigment distribution and purity. The colors never completely dry out because Holbein suspends the pigments in a mixture of wax and mineral oil.

These pastels provide brilliant results on paper and canvas. The large square stick shape is easy to hold and less prone to breakage. Spray fixative is unnecessary as it will only detract from the richness of the color. We recommend that you frame your mounted work behind glass for an extra layer of protection.
