Tiger Eyes Oil Pastel Tutorial

Tiger Eyes Oil Pastel Tutorial


We are getting tons of use from our Crayola Oil Pastels.
I’ve purchased other pastel kits in the past, but I love the amount of crayon you get with this set. They are so much thicker and have lasted us much longer.

Plus they are nice for little hands.


Amazon currently has them for $3.88 and free shipping as an add on for Prime
I highly recommend them!
They are wonderful quality, and produce stunning results:


I know right?!

This is our latest project, Tiger Eyes!

I’ve posted the two part photo tutorial

Drawing your Tiger Eyes
Using Oil Pastel on Tiger Eyes

I’m guessing that this would be perfect for 6th and 7th graders,
or very enthusiastic elementary students.

The tiger is the national animal of India, and would also tie ie with our previous oil pastel tutorial of India’s national bird, the peacock.


Can you guess what country we’ll be studying this coming year?

    That’s a good deal for the crayola oil pastels. I didn’t even know they made them. I am ordering a set. I am super excited that you shared the tutorial for the tiger eyes. I can’t wait to try this with my son. The picture that was done in your post was beautiful.

      It’s a great deal for pastels! We really get a ton of use from them, and even though they can be a tad messy, it washes off quickly :) Please do share what you and your son create, I’d love to see photos!

    Hi! I LOVE this tutorial! That said, I have quite a few small children that I think would love to work along side my older ones. Do you think you could offer a tiger coloring page like you did for the peacock so my littles can just fill in with color? The older ones can draw their own, but it would be perfect if you could post a printable page for this one too! If you do, will you post it on FB so I can see it? I forget to check back here sometimes! Thanks :D
