When looking for pastel surfaces, you will find many options. Oil pastels can be applied to surfaces other than pastel paper, but toothy surfaces provide better grip. In this article, the paintings displayed here were created on Clairfontaine Pastelmat,and Ampersand Pastelbord. The Pastelmat paper is ideal for the novice, but toothier papers are better for impasto work as they hold more layers. Other surface options you could consider are canvas, oil paper, heavy weight watercolour paper, mix media paper and even wood, glass, plastic and metal. If you are using a smoother surface you may want to prepare your surface with a pastel ground to give more tooth for the oil pastel to adhere to.

As an artist starting in the coloured pencil medium, you may be confused by the range of coloured pencils available. You have a limited budget, yet you want to learn with the best available tools. When you test out a brand for the first time, you often find that strong colour is more difficult to achieve from lower-priced coloured pencils.

Best of all, they don't smudge, so you don't have to worry about accidentally ruining your artwork.” One of the reasons I like to use these coloured pencils is because they do not break as easily as others and maintain a sharp point, compared to wax-based pencils I’ve used. The colours are vibrant and they sharpen well.By comparing the two non-lightfast colour wheels above, both the oil-based and wax-based pencils have strong violets and blues. Colored pencils with softer cores tend to break easier than those with harder cores. Oil-based colored pencils have a harder core than wax-based ones so they break less often. You are far more likely to find wax-based pencils at your local art store compared to oil-based pencils. Oil-based colored pencils are considered more premium and therefore come with a higher price tag. 3. Hard/Soft
People who want a richer color saturation in their drawings would benefit from using these pencils. They are also perfect for people who are interested in painting with oil because they’re good at blending colors together. This is the type of pencil that you would be using instead of regular colored pencils. Artists illustrators, students and hobbyists will all benefit from using oil pencils for their artwork. 5. How to choose which colors will best suit your needsOil-based colored pencils can be blended easily together, allowing you to come up with new hues and colors suited to your artwork. This also allows your work to appear seamless and smooth. Can You Use Rubbing Alcohol To Blend Colored Pencils? With a rich pigment, the oil-based colored pencils are ultra-smooth and easy to lay down and help to perfectly capture hues and enhance drawings.
