Oil Pastels & Oil Sticks -The Differences & Uses of Each

Jerry’s LIVE Episode 65

Even when browsing artist’s web group posts, it becomes disturbingly apparent in discussions that even some professional artists don’t know the difference between oil pastels and oil sticks. But they SOUND like the same thing. Aren’t they? NOPE. Which can be safely incorporated in the lower levels of an oil painting? Which ones actually DRY (oxidize) over time, and which don’t?


Which require a special fixative, and which are able to be varnished with oil painting varnishes? Which works better for mixed media works? Don’t despair. Watching this Jerry’s LIVE episode means you got this! Knowing the differences of both will enable any artist to construct the most archival artworks with either media.
