So along time ago when I was a kid I really loved oil pastels. They colour was unlike anything I had seen before. And so my dad bought me a really nice set of oil pastels for Christmas one year. Time has fallen away and I recently refound this set of mostly unused oil pastels. And I want to use them, but I have found that their thick size makes them less wieldly than oil paints, which I am not more used to using. So my thought is, can I integrate the two? They are both oil based, and it seems that the oil pastels would be great for getting the blocking out of the beginning painting because there would be no dry time. Any opinions?
Anyone one have an additional suggestion on something cool I could do to use them up?
