Oilbars are genuine Winsor & Newton oil colors in a solid stick. They offer artists an exciting and versatile way of painting and drawing, from sketching to sgraffito in combination with tube colors. Convenient and easily portable, they combine the rich and buttery consistency of tube oil color with the immediacy of pastels and charcoal.
Made from quality artists’ grade pigments, linseed or safflower oils and specially selected waxes, this broad range of colors expands creative options for the artist’s palette. The color range harmonizes with all other Winsor & Newton tube colors and can achieve beautiful transitions.
Oilbar colors transfer to canvas with little pressure, freeing artists to create bold gestures or subtle passages. Draw with these oil sticks directly onto a surface and create thick, saturated strokes of color with considerably less mess than when painting with tube oils.
