Sennelier oil stick wooden box set with 12 x 38ml sticks plus cloth, painting knife and 4 charcoal sticks.
Oil paint in stick form allows oil painting to be approached differently. It extends the artist's freedom of expression, allowing a greater degree of spontaneity, of "expressionism".
A proportion of the oil in the oil stick is substituted with a neutral mineral wax, resulting in the stick appearance. Before use, the surface film should be removed - just a cm or inch, depending on how much you intend to use in one painting session. A new 'skin' will dry and re-form after a few days of non-use. The surface film will allow you to keep your hands relatively clean.
Sennelier colours are of perfect quality: pure pigments are ground into vegetable oils (siccatives), selected for their low degree of yellowing with time. The choice and high concentration of pigments enables excellent light resistance to be achieved.
Supports: canvas, canvas boards, laminated panels, paper.
Solid oil paint should be applied in a relatively thin film (no more than 1mm). Layers can be overlapped, in the same manner as paste oil paint, and can, if necessary, be thinned with oil paint medium or artist's turpentine. Paint dries within 2 to 5 days depending on layer thickness and atmospheric conditions.
The product may be stored for extended periods of time and requires no special attention, apart from avoiding heat sources that may damage it. Once dry, the paint may be varnished like conventional oil paint, after a minimum drying period of 6 months, using an oil paint finishing varnish.
