October 23, 2009, Newsletter Issue #164: What are Paint Sticks?

Tip of the Week

Paint sticks are a pretty fun and funky way to paint with oil paints. Paint sticks are actually just oil paint in stick form, kind of like a crayon made with oil paint. Paint sticks offer a different way to work with oil paint. Rather than using a brush, you hold the paint stick in your hand to create different lines or textures than you could with a brush. Oil paint sticks also have a slow drying time just like oil paint in a tube, so you can take your time creating a masterpiece!
