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!

    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs some work Tried out my new EZ Rest Hand Rest today. I attached it to my work table upon which I have my table easel set up. I was able to use it to paint fine details without touching areas of wet paint elsewhere on my canvas, just as advertised. Very handy! After much trial and error, I found a way to attach it to my wooden standing easel. I would recommend that attachment instructions with photos be included, showing how to attach it to a variety of easels. I did not attach it as was shown on the product video because my easel does not have a tray like the one in the video. The EZ Rest will not fit my table easel at all but that's not a problem since it fits the table upon which my table easel sits. The maximum allotted space for attaching it to something is approximately 1 6/8". The "washer" at the end of the screw does not thread on and continually falls off during set-up. Maybe that can be improved upon, too. The actual mahl stick fits into its slot just fine (unlike the complaint another customer mentioned) but may need a little candle wax or such to make it glide with less effort. The stick measures 30 3/4" in length. Oh, and one more recommendation: The word /position/ on the outside of the box is not spelled /posisition/ or /possion/. I always question the quality of a product when there are misspelled words on the box. Overall, I like the product. I think it will serve a purpose for me, however, I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone else as is. I predict I'll use it enough to warrant the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works great. I'm an amateur artist and this product really helps to keep my paintings clean and to do fine detail. It's so easy to use. I wouldn't be with out one again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Invention I gave it 4.9 stars because of its ingenious invention but lack of instructions. It's adjustable in every way, though. For those painting on larger canvases, you might have to add an extension arm to your easel to give this device something to clamp to. (Easy enough) You should know that it's made very well and won't move down to touch your wet canvas. It stays suspended above it. (Very cleaver design) It should be noted that it doesn't move easily when you want to cover your wet painting with its 'slide' movement. It only moves smoothly on the 'swing' but not the 'slide'. The 'slide' will have to be adjusted for each position around your painting. After using it for a couple weeks, now, only con I can think of is the lack of a 'user manual' of any kind nor any instructions. There is minor assembly required with nothing to tell you how to do it nor any instructions to tell you how to use it. (Although, it is rather self explanatory, but still...) YES, I recommend it for those wanting to keep your hand off of the wet paint. It does work quite well for that. It's actually a very ingenious utility tool for us oil painters. Enjoy your painting!

    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.
