Welcome to dickblick
Give yourself or your artist the freedom of drawing and the advantages of the finest oil paints.
Handmade and richly pigmented, R&F Pigment Sticks are comparable in quality with the finest tube oil paints. They have a lipstick soft consistency that gives them the same fluidity, subtlety, and durability of traditional oil colors.
Pigment Sticks can be layered or mixed with traditional fine oil paints and mediums. They dry to a durable film, and can be used on any support proper for oil or encaustic painting.
