Welcome to dickblick
Unlike conventional oil colors, Paintstik Oil Colors are dry to the touch in 24 hours! They are perfect for sketching out shape, composition, and color without messy palettes or mixing cups.
Colors can be spread or blended with a brush, knife, or Colorless Blender. The colors are completely compatible and can be blended with any oil paints. Use turpentine to thin. Paintstik colors are self-sealing — just peel off the film before each use.
There are no unpleasant odors or fumes, so you can paint virtually anywhere, at any time, and on almost any surface: canvas, paper, wood, plastic, metal, and fabric. Non-toxic and hypo-allergenic. A free color chart is available on request.

Comments about Shiva Artist's Paintstik Oil Colors:
Will be used for quilting and sharing in embroidery work. Was a little confused about the need to "peel" a portion off before use though?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for reaching out! We're always glad to assist you with any product questions you may have. In the case of oil sticks like the Shiva, the sticks do develop a "skin" over the outside that keeps the interior of the stick from drying through. Just remove that prior to use. If you ever have questions about using a product you purchase from us, we hope you'll feel welcome to reach out to our Product Information Team. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they're happy to help!

My Go-To Medium
By NewMexico Kris
from Albuquerque, NM
I love using Shiva Paint Sticks on gesso board, canvas board and wood panels. They let me freely draw and develop my concepts with brilliant and rich color. I have also been using them to draw on fabric, with good results. The color range is awesome, and the ease of use is what I really like. They have very rich jewel tone color, and good workability, and generally dry down in a matter of days. Every few weeks I treat myself to a few more different colors - just can't get enough!

Love this product!
from Riverside, CA
Love the Shiva sticks, they have a great creamy texture, smooth and easy to use, love that they are self healing so they don't leave a mess everywhere.
Just what I needed.
from North Carolina
I bought a few of these Paintstiks so I could draw on top of my abstract acrylic paintings. I was not planning on blending them with each other, but I ended up doing so since it created an interesting look and they were so easy to blend. I found them to be messy, but I didn't really mind since it's great to be able to draw with paint almost like a crayon. My only minor complaint is that the minis are so tiny. If I get more, I may stick with the regular-sized Paintstiks.
Excellent value for money

I've been using Shiva for years. Great selection of colors, and all but one have stayed true over time. Good blending/smoothness and quick drying time.
Scumble Scumble Scumble
By Owl Blueye
from Seattle, Washington
I have used all the various oil bar brands, I love this one because it is drier on the get go-not too oily or gooey. I work it over my dried ink work on paper, loving the way it scumbles across the surface-not too little-not to much, it heightens the texture of my trees, birds and landscapes. It dries very fast. I also love the color range that Shiva offers.
Creamy and yummy
Love them. They are so creamy and blendable and the colors are divine.
Pure elegance! So glad I purchased!
from Central New Jersey
As a first time user of the Shiva Paintstiks, I was a little intimidated of the media since it is oil. I was concerned about how well they will blend. I was extremely pleasantly surprised at how smooth and creamy these are. Blending is magical. It was so easy to work with, did not dry too quickly, but within 24 hours was dry and looks wonderful. So glad I finally tried them. Absolutely recommend!

I LOVE this invention! This is exactly what i needed. The most comfortable media!I am more graphic artist them painter, so I am happy to have something in my hands, and to feel it while drawing/painting, as opposed the brushes. Also very convenient to not have a deal with thinner, etc... READY TO GO TO PLEIN AIR as well: no extra things to care with you, just canvas and oil sticks!!! These guys are my best friends now!

from New York, NY.
First they have a odor, when using and after. Second I want a oil stick I can just pick up and use. That film is a nuisance, how in the hell do you take it off. Didn't leave a mark luckily I had some sandpaper nearby. Jeez.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. Please keep in mind that these sticks are a true oil paint — they smell like linseed oil and they dry to a durable paint film. Because of the drying oil in the composition, they form a skin over the outside, as all oil paint sticks do. We're sorry if this is not what you were expecting, and it sounds as though you might prefer oil pastels instead. If we can assist you in finding a product that would be more to your liking, we hope you'll let us help. Just call 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email email@example.com.
