Are wax crayons the same as oil pastels?

Crayons use wax and oil pastels use non drying oil and wax. Oil pastels are very rich, soft and creamy. Hence, they are easy to smear, blend in, layer, mix and shade.

As opposed to that, crayons are harder and the two crayon colours don’t really mix together very well.

Neocolor I project

While Neocolor ll wax pastels are water soluble the Neocolor l wax pastels are permanent and have a smaller range of colours but are just as vibrant.

A few years ago while we were at Patchings Art Festival (we are looking forward to the festivals and shows starting up again once Covid19 is behind us) one of our demonstrators was working with neocolor l. He was applying them to terracotta plant pots. He decided to do a picture of me on one of the pots, in the following pictures you can see how well the wax pastels cover the surface of the terracotta pot.

All he did when he’d finished was to buff up the surface with a paper towel. The colours are still amazing after all these years.

Neocolor sets are available

While you can buy your crayons individually sets make a great gift. Ask in the shop for the options and prices available.
