The Van Gogh Oil Pastels Set of 12 is an excellent choice for anybody about to try oil pastels for the first time. The colour range has been chosen to include the most essential shades needed to begin creating wonderful pictures and designs. The set is presented in a colourful, sturdy cardboard box and each pastel has a protective paper covering.
Van Gogh Oil Pastels are mixed from pigments, mineral oils and waxes and are wonderfully soft. They can be used on a variety of surfaces - paper and card, as you would expect, and even wood. You'll find them easy to blend with your fingers or a pastel stump and any colour accidentally transferred pastel to pastel can be wiped away using a paper towel.
The entire range consists of 60 colours and the Van Gogh Oil Pastels Set of 12 comprises of the following ones:
100.5 White, 205.5 Lemon Yellow, 202.5 Yellow, 311.5 Vermilion, 318.7 Carmine, 504.5 Ultramarine, 570.5 Phthalo Blue, 675.5 Phthalo Green, 614.5 Permanent Green Medium, 227.5 Yellow Ochre, 409.5 Burnt Umber, 700.5 Black
