I attached the first drawing I've done using oil pastels (on the back of an illustration board) to show you the set's capabilities. Now, I know that this is nothing like Van Gogh's expressive self portraits but I just want to prove that beginners can do a decent job with this set.
*By the way, this is my mom's account
I'm still experimenting with using pastels on different kinds of paper and other surfaces; so far the only one I have rejected is plain notebook paper (too smooth?). Love drawing with these in my sketchbook and also on canvas. The Sakura website has a lot of very cool techniques to try out with these pastels; I really like the dotting and masking drawing methods.
My one star off is because these come completely loose in their box (no inner plastic wrap to hold them in place), and they were a mess: the different colors had wiped onto each other, leaving no "pure" tips on the sticks. I tried to clean some off by hand, but mostly I just had to waste product by drawing out lines until the smudged dots were worn away. I understand that this is the Junior assortment, so these sticks aren't boxed up with the same care as expensive art supplies, but it was still disappointing to see my new colors so mistreated.
We are in an artsy stage around the house - the kids have been studying artists and reproducing some of what interests them. Oil pastels are much easier to work with than paints, produce good coverage and rich colors, blend, and get great results.
Mom Tip: As soon as you open the box, break all the pastels. Then no one has to wait.
