Art maulstick

I hope the word “maulstick” is not a mystery to you. This artistic attribute is almost always absent from novice artists, as well as those who paint with a palette knife. Maulstick is mainly used by artists who paint in an academic style, where the registration of the smallest details and the work of glaze are especially required.

The art maulstick is a long, light stick, which serves as a “reference assistant” to the artist for the hand of which he paints. In fact, this is a stick with a soft tip, it looks funny, but it helps a lot in working on a picture.

Why do you need a maulstick?

Maulstick provides several points of help:

  • support for the hand, so as not to get tired when painting;
  • allows you to keep your hands and picture clean;
  • removes tremor of hands (everyone has a minimal trembling in their hands, having support can get rid of it);
  • easy and convenient to paint the smallest details;

Types of maulsticks

Classic maulstick

this is exactly the one that you have repeatedly seen – a stick with a soft pad.

In small paintings, you can use a regular stick, leaning on the corner of the picture, and a small pad of the maulstick keeps the canvas from touching it.

Modern maulstick

I called it that because the first one has been known since ancient times, and this one appeared recently. Such a swinging arm is convenient, mobile and is mounted on a stretcher of the picture. This assistant will allow you to draw lines, and prescribe small details, this is despite the fact that your hands are free, in one hand, and the second is not involved, unlike the classic one where the second hand holds the maulstick.

The second option is certainly more impressive and often those who see it for the first time increase their eyes from interest. But the second option is considered not at all budgetary and it is chosen by artists who draw a lot of straight lines for urban landscapes. While most do maulstick on their own.

How to make the maulstick.

To make a maulstick you will need:

  • wooden stick;
  • hard paralon, champagne cork or cotton wool, you can also take a children’s toy “rubber ball” (to form a soft tip);
  • fabric or suede (for the cover of the tip);

At one end of the stick you need to form a soft cushion of any material that is listed on top and wrap it in a cloth and then securely fix it and tie it on a stick. It should get the likeness of a drumstick only on an enlarged scale.

Here is your art maulstick and ready to get started.
