Day 259

I got a pack of gelatos today, Faber Castell oil pastels in tubes with lids. I had a quick play with them, just applied dry to paper:

  
They go on very smoothly, and are indeed creamy. The colours are nice.

I then had a go at blending them dry with my finger:

  
The colours blend quite well, though I did find that the thicker layer ‘pilled’ slightly, rubbing off little rolled pieces of pastel.

I’m looking forward to using them further and trying them combined with other materials.
