Don't let smudges and a shaky hand deter you from completing your amazing painting project.
Instead...paint with a stick!
Yeah, people have been using it for years.
This stick which helps support the painting hand from wobbling is called a Mahlstick.
(It also helps not smudging the painting with your hand.)
Check out Sofonisba Anguissola's self-portrait & stick!
She's using it to focus on the little details that will make her painting sing.
it's time to say no to a shaky hand and smudges!
