Markal Artists Paintstiks - #60 Student Grade - Set of 12
Markal Artists Paintstiks are real oil paints in a dry stick form. Not to be mistaken with crayons or pastels Paintstiks are made with highly refined drying oils and blended with the finest pigments before being molded into sticks. When the Paintstiks are pressed against the painting surface they actually liquefy at the point of contact, allowing you to paint wet with a dry stick.
Paintstiks are easy to use and hassle-free, you can use them without the trappings of oil paints - there's no need for pallets, mixing cups, brushes or turpentine, letting you concentrate on exploring shape, composition and colour while out on a field trip.
In the studio Paintstiks are versatile and can be applied and blended in nearly infinite colour variations with the finger, a paint brush or a pallet knife. They are compatible with oil paints and varnishes that are used with oil paints allowing an image painted with paintsticks to be worked over with conventional oil paints or varnished just like a regular painting. Good for application onto fabric, such as for fabric stencilling, etc.
