Box set of 36 x 38ml Sennelier Artists Oil Sticks. The Sennelier Oil Stick is a composition of oil paint; A proportion of the oil is substituted with a neutral mineral wax, resulting in the stick appearance. Sennelier colours feature quality, pure pigments which are ground into vegetable oils (siccatives), selected for their low degree of yellowing with time. The choice of high concentration pigments also allows for excellent light resistance. Suitable for use on canvas, canvas boards, laminated panels and paper.
Solid oil paint should be applied in a relatively thin film (no more than 1mm). Layers can be overlapped, in the same manner as oil paint, and can, if necessary, be thinned with turpentine. Before use, the surface film should be removed. This will re-form after a few days of non-use. Paint applied dries within 2 to 5 days depending on layer thickness and atmosphere conditions. 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.
