M&G Arts oil pastels are designed for beginners and art lovers who appreciate high-quality art supplies at an affordable price to express their creativity. Oil pastels with a soft texture and good coverage allow for inspiring self-expression for anyone interested in pastel painting. To add expressiveness and colour to your work, M&G Arts pastels allow also painting in extra thick layers and mixing the tones. The pastels contain bright pigments, oil and wax, and their rich texture resembles oil paints, also allowing the fusion of transitions with turpentine and the creation of oil painting-like effects, and even complementing of oil paintings. Anyone can be an artist!
