When you're ready to start your next oil painting, pick up Shiva Artist's Paintstik Oil Colors instead of a brush. Ideal for sketching and outlining, Artist's Paintstik Oil Colors are a refined linseed oil blended with quality pigment and solidified into a convenient stick form.
For the professional artist, art student or amateur artist, Artist's Paintstik Oil Colors are an effective medium to think out shape, composition and color, without a palette or mixing cup. They are also a useful aid to the art teacher to help students grasp fundamentals of oil painting without using classroom time for mixing paint and clean-up. You can actually paint "wet into wet" with a solid oil stick, allowing a feeling of free, spontaneous expression.
There are no unpleasant odors or fumes, so you can paint virtually anywhere, at any time, and on almost any surface: canvas, paper, wood, plastic, metal, and fabric. Non-toxic and hypo-allergenic.
