These Sennelier Artists' Oil Sticks come in a set of 36 brilliant colors in a deluxe wooden container. These sticks are made from safflower oil and mineral wax with highly concentrated pigments in a wide array of hues. These sticks may be used alone or combined with oil paints, and like tube oil paints, when mixed with turpentine, they will dry to a hard film. Artists looking for a tool for sketching may find these sticks particularly useful, but they may be used for complete works. They were certainly good enough for Pablo Picasso, whose formual they were originally developed for over 60 years ago.
The sticks come in a wooden box that latches and is lined with foam for better portability without the fear of breakage.
