Mahl stick (hook type)

Postby St.Luke » Mon Feb 23, 2015 7:20 am

Recently I came across an Internet image of an artist using a hook-type mahl stick. The hooked end hanged over the top railing/edge of the canvas/board. It could also be used over the top rail of a large easel.
Since I could not buy one locally, I decided to make my own from a scrap piece of aluminium plate. On completion, I tried it out. I am very happy with this type. The metal plate edge stops the mahl stick from sliding. Unlike the padded mahl sticks, this one does not touch the surface of the painting. This stick is 60 inches long, and it is good for surfaces less than about 55 inches high.

This is now my favorite type of mahl stick.
