Tip file: Using oil sticks with oil paint

From the Oil Mediapedia in the November 2009 issue of The Artist’s Magazine:

Yes and no. Oil sticks are made with the same pigments as traditional oils, with drying oil and wax, but they never dry completely. Try using oil sticks to create highlights on a finished painting.
