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.

Simply the Best!

Comments about R&F Pigment Sticks:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about R&F Pigment Stick Sets:
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.

Because I use a lot of texture in my work I need a solid base. This produce is the best available.

R&NF Pigment sticks are very high quality ( pigment rich). I love to use them ( though sparingly)They have no discernible oder and add a valuable dimension to painting projects. I have been experimenting with them and can see I am hooked.
Best quality pigment sticks
Clean, easy to use,high quality color pigment stick.
Love the consistency of this oil stick. The colors are brilliant. Other brands have had a hardness to them.
What a surprise!
The 38mm size is perfect for my small hands. The smooth texture is great. I am using them on watercolor paper and acrylic primed canvas. They are just so much fun to use!!!!
I love ordering from Blick!

They always seem to have what I want in stock, and there is speedy delivery. What more could I ask for?
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.
