Impasto Oil Paints

Impasto, an Italian word meaning dough or paste, is a painting technique in which thick layers of paint are applied onto a canvas, most often with a palette knife rather than a traditional paintbrush.  Many times when artists use this technique, they mix the paint directly on the canvas to achieve their desired color compositions.  When dry, impasto creates a textured, almost three dimensional painting, that appears to be coming out of the canvas.
