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.

Blending Stick — Just like an R&F Pigment Stick without the pigment, it is specially designed for blending edges, heightening transparency, and glazing colors.
Blending Stick with Drier — This blending stick has the same formula and working properties as the blending stick above, with a small amount of cobalt drier added to speed up drying time.
Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
