When working with soft or hard pastels, the tilt feature on an easel is important to help gravitate the pastel dust. You may not find this feature necessary when working with oil pastels. The Best University easel is considered a heavy-duty studio easel made out of Oak, whereas the Richeson Basset Studio Easel is not quite as dense, but it is made out of Lyptus wood, a wood that rejuvinates much faster than Oak. Additionally, you may wish to consider a convertible easel, which you can lay horizontally or vertically for various media. Feel welcome to contact us at Blick. We'd be happy to go over what easel may best meet your needs.

Hi Cumberland and welcome to the oil pastel forums. I am going to move your post to the oil pastel talk thread as you will get much more feedback there.

Thank you for your response! I have considered the Best Halley Easel but I am concerned about the platform of the lobo being bothersome. At this point I don't know if I would use the "convertible" feature.
