The easiest way to steady your hand while painting!

Artist, inventor and engineer Ray Givonetti's invented the EZ Rest, which measures 30¾" long, and brings you all the joy in painting without the limitation of a traditional Mahl Stick. 

EZ Rest's unique mounting cube allows you to clamp it virtually anywhere on your easel. Just slide in the EZ Rest into the clamp base and you're ready to use. Simply hold the EZ Rest with the last 3 fingers of your painting hand and pull back slightly to position your hand rest exactly where you want it. In seconds you can move it up or down and swivel to virtually anywhere you need it! 

Ingeniously, the forward pressure of you resting your hand on EZ Rest when you start to paint, will lock the shaft in place preventing it from sliding up or down. Its disk shape is designed to fit the palm of your hand making it very comfortable. Hold your palette with your other hand and paint with a new found freedom only EZ Rest can give you!

    Ez Rest Painting Handrest is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not really as advertised I bought this and waited impatiently to get it as it looked like a great solution for doing detail work. Wrong. When it says you can attach it anywhere to your easel, this is not true. I own two different easels, and there was no lower second shelf on which to attach this. I thought I'd try it out on a tabletop, and when I got it set up discovered that there is a lot of play in the stick, which made it unworkable. It's possible I did something wrong on the tabletop set up but interestingly there were NO INSTRUCTIONS included in the box. I suspect what I got was someone else's return. Finally, I had to pay about $9 shipping and have sent it back and am told that I won't get refunded my return shipping. Guess I'll stick to my good ole Mahl stick... Meanwhile, I'm very disappointed with Jerry's.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ez Rest Painting Handrest Pros/Cons I never needed a hand rest for painting in acrylic, but when I swaped to oil, I suddenly had painted sleeves and palms! I decided to try the Ez Rest Handrest since I could conveniently attach it to my easel. It does attach easily, however, the stick was too long for my tabletop setup, so I cut it shorter (no problem). It works great, however, it needs a bit of tightening at times. I especially appreciate it for detail work as it becomes a platform for a steady hand. Overall, the pros definitely outweigh cons and it certainly is far more functional than a solo handset.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent 3rd hand I like the way I can rest my arm on this and make smooth lines

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs to rotate Very solidly build. Works excellent if when attached, the bar is at the right angle for your painting. Only issue is the bar does not rotate, which limits its use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Features My wife bought me this product for Christmas and it works very well, the only issue I can see with the product is that it doesn’t fit some easels as well as it does others. I’m glad that I have and use two different types of easels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Mahl stick invention I was hesitant to buy this because I normally just use a regular old mahl stick I create myself. The box arrived, with instructions, and it was a perfect fit for my easel; super easy to figure out how to use and only took a few minutes to adjust it on my easel. I do think you have to have a good, sturdy easel for this to work. I tried it on an oil painting of a winter scene I am working on. The focal point of the painting is a tree with delicate branches. This tool helped me keep my hand steady while painting the details. I absolutely love this tool and I am so happy I purchased it. My next project is a portrait and I know this will be my best friend in creating my piece. LOVE IT

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made the difference in my painting I highly recommend this handrest if you pant a lot. It allows you to rest your hand just an inch or so off the canvas to make those small, intricate paint strokes without having to lean on your fresh paint! It's easy to attach and rotates 180 degrees.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an amazing product! I purchased this product because I need the extra help to steady my hands. If you have a physical condition that might impair your ability to do detail work, I would strongly recommend this product. It took my husband minutes to set it up and has been a wonderful asset to my work. When it loosens up it is quite simple to tighten.

    Will this work on a bob Ross easel?

    Asked by: Daspiers
    Thank you for contacting us. I am not sure if the EZ Rest would work well on the Bob Ross easel since the rest is designed to be used with more of an H frame, A-frame or table format. The EZ Rest is a Jerry's exclusive item and does come with a 30-day money back guarantee, so if it does not work with the Bob Ross easel you could always return it to us for a refund.

    An additional question--does the weight of the hand push the arm toward the canvas? In the photo it looks like the distance between the arm and the surface of the painting is not too great.

    Asked by: meartist
    You can view a video of the hand rest in action here https://youtu.be/giyvdVUX14w As you can see in the video the pressure applied does not push the stick toward the canvas. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    I'm thinking about buying a Best Deluxe Tabletop Easel--would this be able to be secured to it?

    Asked by: meartist
    The Ez Rest Painting Handrest is designed to clamp to any traditional easel. My only concern with the table easel is that the clamp would not have the space to clamp on securely. You could clamp it to the leg or side of the table if you are unable to clamp it to the table easel itself. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    Would it clamp to a 5/8" drawing table?

    Asked by: bbbb
    We have not tested this EZ Rest with a drawing table. The clamp for the EZ Rest can be secured to several different easel locations and it could be attached it to the side of a table without issue. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
