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, on almost any surface — canvas, paper, wood, plastic, metal, and fabric.
Paintstik colors are non-toxic and hypo-allergenic. A free color chart is available on request. Each stick measures 4-1/2" long × 5/8" in diameter.
Set of 12 Colors
White, Yellow, Green, Red, Deep Red, Brown, Orange, Purple, Blue, Ochre, Red Brown, and Black.
Set of 6 Colors

I certainly would by these again
from New Port Richey, Fla
After having painted a background in acrylic paints I use the oil sticks to draw lines which I then can manipulate these with terpentine and Liquin aand brushes.

My students and I love Shiva oil sticks
By D. Frye
from Palestine, TX
I buy the student grade for my high school students. This is a great alternative to buying sets of normal, expensive oil paints. As I teach Impressionism and Post Impressionism, the oil sticks are a great medium to make rich paintings with a variety of textures. My students have so much fun with these. It's their favorite media to work with. They are a bit expensive, but they tend to last a couple of years if I reserve them for smaller advanced classes.

Beautiful blending with no mess!
By The Art Teacher
from Conway, AR
With these paintstix, you get the appeal of oil paint without the mess and chemicals. Think of them as advanced oil pastels!
By Ced and Anna
from Miami, FL
This is a great quality product. It's easy to blend, a little goes a long way, it's easier to manage if you're not great at painting with the traditional wet paints, it drys quickly, it's easy to fix mistakes and it's very pretty on canvas.

Since I love painting with my fingers, these oils are very comfortable to use.You can use them as normal oil paints, and it's ok to use oil thinners with them.You can use them on any surface.This certain brand is really good quolity and for a decent price. Love it!
from Shelbyville, KY
First use of these sticks. Practice needed on my part & having lots of trouble w/the oil blender stick that I purchased w/the colored oil sticks. It is way too messy & there has to be a better way than this to get most benefit from "painting" w/oil sticks. Any suggestions?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

True Colors Shinning Through
By Clynns the Quilter
from North Lewisburg, Ohio
This product was used freehand on canvas to learn blending techniques. I also used Shiva Paintstiks Iridescent blender to mix as an option. Colors are deep and true. Very easy to use.

Shiva Paint sticks/Manga pens
By Weesna the Short
from Post Falls, ID
I received my Manga pens on time, as well as my Shiva paint sticks. They were both undamaged from the trip. I also received a free booklet with my manga pens, but they came unexpectedly. I was not informed that I would get the free book, nor did I find anything anywhere on the web site (it was in the magazine) that I would be getting the free booklet. It was a pleasant surprise, but unexpected. I would definitely order from them again.
Shiva Paintstik are a high quality oil paint made into a stick. It is the perfect medium for painting, sketching, stenciling, rubbings and many more applications. Watch this video to see how easy Shiva Paintstiks are to work with.
