Question:

Can these be used with oil pastels?

Answers:

  • Posted by Anita Pounder on Thursday, 12 July 2018

    The Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils are an oil based (as opposed to wax based) coloured pencil . Made from high grade pigments and have good lightfast properties Theses are water resistant but can be blended with solvents.

    Oil pastels are a an interesting and versatile medium. They consist of pigment mixed with a non-drying oil and wax binder.

    I have seen a number of different artist use both Oil pastels and coloured pencils successfully. Oil pastel is used along side of often on top of the Coloured pencil.

    As with any medium it is worth testing.
