Trying Out Student Grade Pentel Oil Pastels

I thought I’d try oil pastels while we were in New Orleans recently. I got a whole box of them for close to 7 dollars. Fun. I decided not to give it such an outline next time and found that working the oil pastel too much during blending caused it to bunch up instead of disperse and mix. I guess the blending characteristics of student grade oil pastels have their limits. The coins are just so you can get an idea of size.
