Oil stick

Oil stick

Oil stick, or oilstick, is an art medium for applying color. It is produced in a stick form similar to that of a crayon or oil pastel. It is distinguished from oil pastel, to which it may appear similar, in that the oil used is comparatively volatile, causing a skin to develop on exposed surfaces.

The same basic pigments and drying oils that are used in the formulation of tube paint are combined with wax and rolled into a crayon. Oil sticks can be used to concur drawings, paintings, and sketches.
