The Sennelier Oil Stick allows for oil painting to be approached differently. It extends the artist's freedom of expression, allowing a greater degree of spontaneity. Oil Sticks are like using oil paint in stick form. Created using pure pigments, a proportion of the usual oil binder is substituted with a neutral mineral wax, resulting in the stick appearance. The choice and high concentration of pigments enables excellent light resistance to be achieved. A clear medium is available allowing transparency and glazing effects to be achieved. Colour can be thinned also with normal oil paint mediums however this will also affect the drying time, respectively.
In the range solid artists' quality colours are available in opaque or transparent shades, depending on the shades of the pigments used. 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.
Before use, the surface film should be removed. This latter will re-form after a few days of non-use. Paint applied dries within 2 to 5 days depending on layer thickness and atmospheric conditions.
