Expressionist Oil Pastel Sets
Invented in 1925 by Sakura Color Products, Cray-Pas oil pastels contain reliable, premium quality pigments, wax, and oil. Extremely smooth to apply, students, hobbyists, and artists can express their creativity with broad strokes and blend colors to build striking texture and depth.
Cray-Pas Expressionist oil pastels make it easy to compose portraits, landscapes, still-life, abstracts, scratch art, and more. The round, jumbo sized sticks measure 10 mm in diameter, and 71mm in length. The color ranges in each set allows artists to convey any inspired feeling or imaginative image.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
