A Mahl Stick is often used by artists' to aid them in painting, especially oil painting due to its lengthy drying time. A Mahl Stick is useful for painting fine detail areas and areas where the surrounding paint is still wet as it prevents these areas from being leant on or touched.
To use the Mahl Stick, just rest the soft end on a dry part of the painting surface. Hold the other end of the Mahl stick with your non painting hand and steady your painting arm on the stick whilst you paint. Ideal for those hard to reach places!
This Mahl Stick is made of a two piece lightweight metal with a cork head and suede leather covering. The length is 895mm.
