Oil Pastels Are Yummy!

I discovered water soluble oil pastels during one of Connie Solera’s Painting the Feminine classes last year. Oh my!

Since that experience, they have become my “go to” drawing tool for art journaling and even painting. In fact, if you look closely at most of my canvases and finished pieces, you’ll see at least one or two marks made with these lovelies.

I might be slightly obsessed with them.

As Connie said to me, wait until you see what happens when you dip them in water!


I dare you to try oil pastels in your next drawing session. Beware, you might get hooked!

Make sure you look for extra soft, water soluble when searching for oil pastels if you want to use them as I have.

Common brands include Crayola and Mungyo (my favorites).
