Their original size oil sticks measure 7/8" x 6". Made of pure pigment blend with refined oil and waxes, Newton & Winsor Bars work smoothly on canvas and paper surfaces. They are completely compatible with tube oil paints as well as, alkyds, gels, varnishes and oil painting thinners.

Oil Bars from Newton and Winsor dry in just 2 to 5 days, and during this time may even be reworked! For field sketching, Oil Bars give the feel and texture of tube paint but with less stuff to haul around. Bring along some brushes and mediums and you have a traveling art studio with a set up time of just seconds! Naturally, all colors are light-fast and permanent.
