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.
I've never written a review before but this product just blew my mind that I just HAD to look it up online :D
*By the way, this is my mom's account (for those who are wondering why a minor has an amazon account already)
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.
The sticks themselves are thin so not a good idea for children who don't have well defined motor skills. If you press too hard they will either break or crumble. I was expecting a little better quality and was somewhat disappointed. But instead of using them myself I let one of my grandaughter's have them.
I have to say, the quality of the colors and the smoothness with which the oil pastels glide along the paper is fantastic. They feel nice to use, leave great colors on the paper, and have a wide array of colors.
The con to these, however, is that they are quite thin and small, and we have broken several of them just through everyday use. I'm not sure I would buy them again, but I do feel like for a first set this was a worthwhile purchase.
of fun with them Well, still having fun with them but there is much to be desired about them. I am using them on wood
which I like better than paper. I am looking forward to trying the Expressionist ones which I also ordered. I wasnt
ready to order the pro set for the money. Will probably end up using professional large oil sticks that I can pick my
own individual colors. But have fun with these..probably the kids will love them.
