Re: Wondering which brand to choose?
It sure would be nice if there was some uniformity in grading oil pastels. Most of us love our Mungyo Gallery Soft, too, but they seem to glide along with no info on pigment/lightfastness, nothing to tell us they are artist grade beyond our own experiences in working with them.
I've also read that there is no uniform measure in artist paint brushes, too - a #2 size from one manufacturer might be somewhat larger or smaller than a #2 from someone else. Seems needlessly confusing.
