This novel medium enables new methods of approaching oil painting.
It allows for more spontaneity and increases the artist's freedom of expression. The Oil Stick is primarily constructed of oil paint. In order to make the oil more manageable and easier to apply to the painting surface, a portion of the oil is replaced with a neutral mineral wax.These colours are of the highest calibre; only pure pigments, chosen for their low rate of oxidative yellowing, are crushed with vegetable oils (siccatives) to create these colours. Excellent light resistance can be achieved thanks to the pigment selection and strong pigment concentration.
These colours necessitate excellent backdrop preparation because they are intended to be applied to traditional oil painting substrates (oil-primed or universal). Canvas, canvas boards, laminated panels, and paper are acceptable supports.
