Made by a painter in upstate New York, it is the closest of the stick-colors to tube color in consistency and open time. Using a pigment stick is a way to get color on your surface without using brushes, knives and solvents. The color selection is professional with some unique, earthy colors such as Turkish Umber Greenish and Sanguine Earth Deep.
Oil paint in stick form represents a revolutionary development in oil painting. It means that the paint can be applied directly to a surface without the distancing factor of the brush. This makes it possible to dispense not only with the brush, but with knives, palette, and solvents, thereby making oil sticks more immediate and portable than standard oil painting materials. They are richly pigmented, with a lipstick soft consistency that gives them the same fluidity, subtlety, and durability of traditional oil colors. But these sticks are much more than just a substitute for tube oils. There are many other uses that go beyond traditional oil paints.
Our customers are using them like traditional oil painting, for mono-types, drawing, 'fusing' them in a sort of hybrid form of encaustic, coloring three dimensional work and other applications that we keep finding out about.
Wet Paint offers all 88 colors here in-line, plus a blender, in the format 3/4' diameter by 5 length, the equivalent of a 38ml tube of oil paint.
