    Oil Pastels look like big crayons, you can buy them in a array of colors, I bought mine in a kit

    nccountrygirl is right . They are not hard charcoal pencils . I've never used them but my sister used to be a genuis at art . She preferred the oil pastels to anything else . Just be carefull not to drag your hand across your art work , the oil pastels tend to smudge very easily ![​IMG]

    That is true that they will smudge easily but they also blend beautifully too.
