Welcome to dickblick
Reap the benefits of high quality oil paints while enjoying the freedom to draw directly on your surface, without the distancing factor of the brush.
Handmade and richly pigmented, R&F Pigment Sticks are comparable in quality to the finest tube oil paints. They have a lipstick soft consistency that gives them the same fluidity, subtlety, and durability of traditional oil colors.
R&F Pigment Sticks are handmade in small batches, carefully milled and molded using the finest natural wax, linseed oil, and pigment. There are no driers, extenders or other additives that are commonly used in industrial production.
Extremely portable, 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. Small sticks are 38 ml, with approximately the same amount of pigment as a standard tube of artist oil paint, while large sticks are 188 ml.

R & F pigment sticks like product, opportunity for creativi
By Gina the was gal
from Guelph, Ontario
Comments about R&F Pigment Stick Sets:
I use them to accent gouged lines and adding depth.They are buttery and smooth compared to any other cheaper sticks which were a waste of money. I should have bought R&F sticks first and all along! colors are bright and steadfast and true to color even when melted for encaustics!I like the packaging tubes they come in, I ordered them and paid Canadian dollars but I still think they were good value for the money well spent!the service was great and arrived packaged well.So far I have no negative points about them,
R&F Pigment sticks are the best. I use them all the time.

I use R&F pigment sticks for most of my work. they do very well on paper that is sized for oil paint. The colors are just beautiful. The down part of using the sticks is they can be messy to use, and one can not mind getting one's hands soiled by the colors. However, for the most part, the colors can be washed off with soap and water.I have won several large awards for my art using R&F oil sticks.
Loaded with pigment
I use the sticks with almost no brush use. This comes from using all sides of my hands with latex gloves on. It's a different mode of painting but if you try it you might like it. The viscosity is great.
R&F Pigment Sticks
from Fayetteville, AR
Love painting with these oil sticks. I love the richness and color choices of this product. I use them in combination with oils and on top of my acrylic paintings. Dick Blick has the best pricing available on them, and I receive them when they say they will be there. I only wish they were a bit cheaper. But as art supplies go, I would say that about all of them!
Simply the Best!
from Lake Norman, NC
I have tried other pigment sticks and found them to be stiff. I needed Liquin to move them around. But the R&F sticks come in a plastic tube with a cap and they come to the painting party already soft and creamy. No need to spend time peeling off a stiff wax film. They are more pricey, but you absolutely get what you pay for with this product. They are worth it.
from Edmonds, Wa
Great way to paint, easy to blend. Absolutely love this product.

Smooth, buttery, beautiful consistency and no waxy outer layer to peel off.
worked well with cold wax
I took at class on using cold wax with oil. The instructor recommends that we should have oil paint sticks. The sticks worked well with the cold wax.
from Long Island NY
Because I use a lot of texture in my work I need a solid base. This produce is the best available.
Draw with oil paint! R&F Pigment Sticks are incredibly soft, creamy, and are comparable in quality to the finest tube oil paints. The stick form allows for unique applications. They are easily portable and do not require brushes or solvents.
