Oilbars are genuine oil colors in a solid stick. They offer artists an exciting and versatile way of painting and drawing - from sketching to sgraffito to use in combination with tube colors. Convenient and easily portable, they combine the rich, buttery consistency of tube oil color with the immediacy of pastels and charcoal. Developed by artists for artists, they are made from quality artists' grade pigments, oils and specially selected waxes. A broad range of colors expands creative options for artists' palettes. The color range harmonizes with all other Winsor & Newton tube color ranges for effortless transitions between them or combining with them. Colors transfer to canvas with little pressure, further freeing artists to create bold gestures or subtle passages. Their formulation features extended time before skinning for more convenience and less waste.
