Shiva Oil Sticks


This is an experiment using Shiva Oil Sticks. After it was dry, I sealed it with a coat of beeswax.

I originally got these sticks to use on fabric. They dry in 24 hours, and can be heat set on fabric. Very cool--not sure I'll use them for my girls. I'm still loving the Golden Open Acrylics...

This is beautiful Karen.
I've yet to learn how to use mine.
Just peeling the tops take forever so you can use them. Or what am I missing?

Man o man, these look so cool !!!

Is this on canvas or paper, fabric, what????????

You know what, I have those oil sticks too but have never used them.

I bet you can guess what I'll be doing today !!!!!!

Did you also use them for the facial features????? I didn't think they'd be good for such detail.

I have so much to learn with all of these new mediums! wax? oil sticks? golden? I need to pull the canvas back out and play!

I recently bought some of these but haven't tried them yet. I hope my results turn out even half as good as yours.

I like to use oils sticks in combination with Golden acrylics. they work well together. I got that idea from Misty Mawn.
