Paintstiks©, pigment sticks, oil sticks–all names for the same type of product–are actually oil paint in easy to use stick form. Formulated from a combination of highly refined pigments and linseed oil in a pure wax, they do not emit offensive odors nor do they require long drying times. Most colors dry in approximately 72 hours and attain a non-smudge stage after an uncovered, overnight cure. The sticks are covered with a paper wrapper, so they are neat to use and are both non-toxic and hypoallergenic.
