When I was in junior high school (long time ago), I won a drawing contest and the prize was a set of oil pastels. Never used them much over the years, but I ran into them recently.
Someone, either me or my parents at the time, threw out the original packaging and placed all my pastels in a freezer bag. While they were protected from the elements they were not protected from themselves.
Assuming the original packaging is lost, what storage strategy can I consider for my pastels. I am thinking about container as well as long term storage concerns. For instance: How is temperature a factor?
