How to get rid of useless oil pastels

February 2, 2008 § 7 Comments

I still had this old set of very hard oil pastels and I did not know what exactly to do with them. For painting with OPs I clearly prefer artist quality oil pastel sticks that are much softer. So what to do with these hard and waxy pastels?

 It was this morning that I realized, that slightly melting them in a flame and smearing them all over a piece of paper is an option, too :).
