An artists' quality oil colour in stick form, Winsor & Newton Artists' Oilbar enables painting and drawing freely and directly onto surfaces.
The new Artists' Oilbar is a unique medium because it provides artists with greater buttery consistency and richness of oil colour together with the freedom and directness of pastels or charcoal. Artists' Oilbar is fundamentally different from oil pastels or oil crayons due to its unique formulation.
Available as loose sticks or in sets of 6 or 12 assorted colours.

I had not used oil bars previously, but decided to try them after seeing some artists work, after a week of having them I ordered some more, I really enjoy being able to use each colour separately and how easy they are to blend and mix. Good value on Ken Bromley, beter value than other sites. P A Shaw (Scarborough, United Kingdom) on 12 Apr 2012
I really love working with oil pastels, am getting the hang of oil paints, and after only a brief time I'm so far loving the oil bars. Am finding myself getting in more of a mess with them, but strangely I find that enjoyable. Only time will tell if any end products using them come out worthy of showing to anyone!

I Just bought a few to try and love their versatility. What i was wondering is if the exposed end could be wrapped in cling film to stop it waxing over. Making it soft and pliable for the next painting. Philip Coleman (Darlington, United Kingdom) on 17 Jan 2015
