Excellent classroom medium

Comments about Portfolio Series Watersoluble Oil Pastels:
These water soluble oil pastels are amazing. Very creamy and easy to mix with great oil pastel effects. Using water and a paint brush with them changes their visual effect from oil pastels to watercolors. Students love working with this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

got this for my birthday along with a long list of other things. This is just as described, it is creamy and it is fun, fun, fun. This is not for serious artists but absolutely great for playing around. The water soluble part gives more room to explore different blending and textures. These go on very nicely and one of the first techniques I tried was the scrafitto and it was a blast. Art is heaven no matter whether it is play or professional.

A useful tool for learning to use pastels, and by the versatility, very inspiring--Worth carrying on y many travels.The only problem is they get very soft in warm climates.
Great Portfolio Oil Pastels!

I haven't compared this to anything else,because this is the first time trying this sort of thing. I was amazed at how creamy and blendable these crayons are. The colors stay bright even when thinned. It's a great value . I love using them !
Love the way these crayons are so workable. Great value.
from Hilton, New York
Easy to use. Soft when needed to be soft and intense when I want more color. Great value. Just wish there were more colors..... Work well dry or wet. Love them...

I use Portfolio water-soluble oil pastels for Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterwork detail recreations. Linen-covered matboard works great, if you can get ahold of it; strathmore watercolor second best, though doesn't 'hold' the stroke because of lack of fibers like the linen board has. This is an excellent medium for revising and editing, because of the water-solubility option which can also be covered over opaquely as desired. It allows students expressive freedom in markmaking, but 'feels' more like painting. As a veteran art teacher which limited class time, I appreciate the minimal CLEANUP time required. Sophisticated, complex look for litte in the way of setup / cleanup.
