The LOUVRE oil pastels are soft, shiny and bright. You can carry out both flat surfaces and thick layers in order to obtain an impasto effect. Watercolors and degraded colors can easily be obtained by diluting slightly with the essence of oil or turpentine. The overlap of colors and the subsequent scraping with a knife blade will give some beautiful effects. The LOUVRE oil pastels can be applied on all types of paper or canvassed cardboard.
