Shiva Oil Paintstiks:

Oil Paintsticks by Shiva are a great tool in any textile artists tool kit!

They are rich and full of colour.

Rub, paint, draw, these paintstiks are permanent on fabric once heat set. 
Shiva Paintstik Artist Colors are refined linseed oil blended with a quality pigment and solidified into a convenient stick form. 
Crayon like, they do not require brushes or cleanup.

You can paint virtually anywhere, at any time, on almost any surface from paper to panel to fabric. Paintstiks are “self-sealing.” That means they form a protective film so the color won’t rub off or dry out**. They always stay moist and fresh, providing an indefinite shelf life because they reseal in 24 hours.

Rubbing Plates:

Your imagination is the only thing that will limit you with this great tool. Can be used for texture with Paintstiks on fabric or even on ceramic pieces! Create your own painted fabrics.

  • Create your own painted fabrics
  • Easy to clean
  • Easy flat storage
  • Works for monoprints with gelatin printing
  • Designs subject to availability

Plates measure 7"× 7", Designs measure about 6.5"× 6.5" depending on design.

** Usage Tips:

The film is easily removed by peeling it away with a paper towel, or rubbing it off gently. It can also be removed by carefully paring it with a knife (it can also be sharpened to a point in this manner)

When the stick has begun to wear to the edge of the sleeve, simply loosen the sleeve from the oil stick at the seam, open the sleeve and push the stick forward. Press the sleeve around the oil stick again and repeat the peeling process as needed

Great for use with rubbing plates

Rubbing plates can be used on both sides - 2 designs on one plate
