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.
To learn more about R&F Pigment Sticks colors, drying rates, and transparency ratings, please visit the Resources tab of this page.
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.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Comments about R&F Pigment Stick Sets:
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!

I have used R&F products for over 6 years. They are consistently of the highest quality. They offer excellent customer service and product information resources too.
R and F pigment sticks
By Dona Mara
from Rupert VT
Although messy these are a pleasure to paint with. Have gloves and figure out how to cover them so that they don't harden. Beautiful intense color.
from St Petersburg, FL
I had never tried pigment sticks before and wasn't sure how they would work with encaustic. I bought the 3 pack which came with 3 colors pale yellow, deep red and black. After just a few minutes of playing with them on a wax medium surface I immediately loved them. The color is so rich and the texture is perfect for my encaustic. After applying you can leave as you applied or alter further with a brush or your fingers. My only regret, is that I didn't order more colors but that can easily be fixed.
Prompt and good service

Packaging of pigments confusing re how to open individual color sticks. Colors vivid. I also ordered some encaustic medium. The paper bag it was in was punctured and some of the pellets scattered in the shipping box. The medium was quick to melt and convenient to use.
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.
See artist Charles Forsberg build layer upon layer of luscious R&F Pigment oil sticks to create an amazing work of art.
