View Full Version : pet peeve w/ oil pastels

sorta dumb question but I have a pet peeve w/ having to stop and peel and oil pastel when I'm "mid-sentence", as it were. And it's never easy. Anyone figured out an easy way to do this? Thanks. Molly

Holbeins don't have wrappers....:D

Try peeling 1/2 when you first get them and then take them off when you get close to that...wanna see some of your stuff!!

I just peel 'em all. Of course, that means I keep a paper towel in myleft hand to wipe them clean when I pick them up, because they pick up each other's colors. But I do that almost without thinking about it now.
I also cut them in half because I often use them on the sides to make broad strokes.
