Oil Pastels lay down bright, vivid opaque color that blends to a true secondary color. The tapered point is ideal for detail drawing. The barrel, designed for children, is jumbo-sized for longer-lasting use. Hexagonal shape prevents them from rolling off desks and makes them easier to hold. They are tightly wrapped for durability, and the rich colors are nontoxic. This pack contains enough gorgeous colors to satisfy every junior artist, whatever they're creating. For a little extra glitz, it also includes oil pastels in metallic gold and silver.
