LET'S SHOP OIL PASTELS!

 

Well, welcome to this one of a kind Blog Post! 🤗🎉🎨😍 

 

Today you and I are going to online shop some beautiful creative mediums together! As announced in my previous Blog Post where I introduce you to the world of oil pastels - I am now going to give you an overview AND shopping list of some of the

- oil pastels I have and also use

- oil pastels I highly recommend

- oil pastels I want to try out hopefully in this life time! 😂💪🏻😁

 

So let's get started 🤗🎉🎨👛

 

 

 

1. SAKURA CRAY-PAS OIL PASTELS

As you will learn in my next Blog Post the oil pastels were invented back in the early 1900's in Japan. Two teachers were very, very inspired by the Japanese artist Kanae Yamamoto who critized the Japanese educational system as too tied and that it was missing color in the approach to teach children. So these two teachers founded the company Sakura Cray-Pas in 1921, which it's STILL producing fantastic colorful and wonderful smooth oil pastels - especially created for kids and for a joyful approach to paint. If you want to know more, go check out my Blog Post about how oil pastels came into our world. THIS shopping list will make more sense to you after reading it 😘

 

So. Let's state it here: I LOOOOVE Sakura Cray-Pas oil pastels. And as you know, I also LOVE colors a lot. I also love how something looks like. If the product is great, but the package isn't appealing to me, I am NOT going to buy it, cause I also want to have fun WHILE I am looking at the product I bought, WHILE it is sitting on his place. I want to have the WHOLE experience. I want to be surrounded by beauty on ALL levels. And so, back in 2014 after quite a long search on the Internet I found some wonderful Hello Kitty Sakura Cray-Pas oil pastels. Aaah, and till this day I LOVE the package! 😍

 

BUT, unfortunately those Hello Kitty Sakura Cray-Pas oil pastels are nowhere to find anymore 😱. WTF 😤

So back I went to dive deep into the mysterious ocean called Internet and thank goodness I found some beautiful alternatives so that you (and I as soon as I have finished Hello Kitty crayons) can enjoy these gorgeous crayons (again) 🤗💪🏻🎉🎨😍

 

So depending on what you want and need, depending on your budget, depending on soo many things I have no idea you have to consider for your own life, here a list of different Sakura Cray-Pas oil pastels. In order to give you an immediate overview of the essentials, each product comes with a big picture (that shows you how many crayons that specific set has), a shopping button plus a price. *Please note that the prices are status April 2021. They listed prices are only meant to give you a quick idea of the price range of the here listed oil pastels category (cause I personally hate to first have to click on the links in order to get an idea of how much that beautiful thing would cost me, ha!).

2. Sennelier OIL PASTELS

 If you're wanting to start (or continue) your creative self-expression journey with the Porsche of the oil pastels, well, then you might want to look into the Sennelier oil pastels. 

 

As you will read in my I mentioned in my Blog Post about the origin of oil pastels Sennelier, THE French manufacturing company of art materials, mostly famous for its hand selected pigments, produced 1949 the first oil pastels for professionals and experienced artists. The founder - Gustave Sennelier - became popular because he would not stock the colors, but create it for his painters. He was not only an artist but also an intelligent business man! And so Cézanne, Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh and many others are know to have used Sennelier's paints. Later on, Gustave's son created then in 1949 the first professional-quality oil pastels for Pablo Picasso. 

 

So, if you want to be part of THAT part of the creative world, I recommend you to try Senneliers oil pastels. When using them you immediately will see and understand why. Yay, they are soooo smooth, soooo wonderful to use, BUT heck, soooo eeeeeeexpensive 😭🔥👛

 

 

So again depending on what you want and need, depending on your budget, depending on all those unique aspects you have to consider for your own life, here a list of different Sennelier oil pastels. In order to give you an immediate overview of the essentials, each product comes again with a big picture (that shows you how many crayons that specific set has), a shopping button plus a price. *Please note that the prices are status April 2021. They listed prices are only meant to give you a quick idea of the price range of the here listed oil pastels category (cause I personally hate to first have to click on the links in order to get an idea of how much that beautiful thing would cost me, ha!).

3. faber castell OIL PASTELS

 

Eventhough I did not specifically mention them in my "How Oil Pastels came into the world"-Blog Post you see them in some of the pictures I used in that specific article: Faber Castell Oil Pastels.

 

Besides the Sakura Cray-Pas oil pastels, the Faber Castell oil pastels are my all time favorites. Amazing colors. Amazing box. Wonderful to use. Gorgeous smoothness. AND: A very good price. And you know, for me, the price must also be right.

 

So here an alternative to the above listed Sakura Cray-Pas and Sennelier oil pastels, that I very, very much love and therefore recommend.

 

And again, depending on what you want and need, depending on soooo many different things, I have again listed a selection of Faber Castell oil pastels. And again, in order to give you an immediate overview of the essentials, each product comes with a big picture (that shows you how many crayons that specific set has), a shopping button plus a price. *Please note that the prices are status April 2021. And also again: They listed prices are only meant to give you a quick idea of the price range of the here listed oil pastels category (cause I really hate to first have to click on the links in order to get an idea of how much that beautiful thing would cost me, ha!).
