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.

I like to do portraits and I have found that these pigment paints blend so wonderfully. Can't wait to try them all.

from Springdale, AR
I'm new to art and just started encaustic painting. It's a difficult medium to work with, especially starting out. I decided to try some R&F Pigment sticks with my encaustics. This product is awesome, I love how easy it is to work with, and a little goes a long way. The R&F pigment sticks allow me to be a lot more creative than I would be able to using encaustics alone.
Wish I had enough money to buy more!
from Monterey, ca
These are super pigmented and such a great smooth texture and easy to use, with less mess and fuss than tubes!
Gorgeous, intense pigments
from Bay Area, CA
High quality, intense pigments for you to treasure & enhance your art
I have used other oil sticks with my encaustic work, but these are truly the best.
R&F Pigment Sticks
I have been painting a long time and just discovered these. The R&F are one of the few pigments sticks that do dry totally to the touch. The Blending sticks are a fantastic addition to these. Lots of fun. My new medium.
R&F Pigment Sticks - I am an abstract expressionist artist
from Reading, Ma
I am an abstract expressionist artist working in oils and mixed media, and would definately buy R&F Oilsagain!! Buttery and blend beautifully!
concentrated pigment highlights my encaustics
Lush, beautiful colors in convenient packaging that is good for storage. Although I also put mine in a zip lock, so they don't dry out. I use them to rub into recesses I make in my encaustics. They really add dimension & pop.
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.
