  • Oil Sticks & Bars
    In an oil stick, traditional oil paint is compressed into an stick or bar shape, which is then encased in wax for easy application. An oil stick will dry like traditional oil paint, and is compatible to use with most other oil painting techniques. You can use an oil stick or bar to draw on your canvas with strong colour, however you can also use an oil stick with a paintbrush to create a classic brush stroke appearance in your artwork. Experiment with new techniques and take a look at our extensive range of oil bars and sticks today.
