R&F Pigment Stick Sets

Vibrant sets of professional quality oil painting sticks!

R&F Pigment Sticks are oil paints manufactured with enough wax for the paint to be molded into stick form. Pigment Sticks allow the artist to draw or paint directly onto a surface without brushes, palettes, paint tubes or solvents. Blending only traditional materials: finely milled pigments, natural wax (beeswax & plant wax), and alkali refine linseed oil, R&F Pigment Sticks have none of the additives, extenders, and substitutes that traditional tube oils contain. While the use of these adulterations can save a lot of work and reduce the cost of materials, they lower the quality of the paint. Consequently the formulas are complex and manufacturing is labor intensive, and thus handmade in small batches where they are carefully milled and molded. The result is a professional quality oil Pigment Stick with a buttery, lipstick-like soft consistency that glides onto the painting surface.

Paint Sticks can be thinned with traditional solvents, mixed with or used under or over traditional oils, or worked with a palette knife to a softer consistency to allow brushing or knifing onto a surface. Curing to a durable film like standard oils, Pigment Sticks can also be used with Encaustic paints for a variety of effects. Blending sticks are offered in two types, and are colorless sticks that can be worked into a Pigment Stick color to increase transparency, or blend colors together on the painting. Like with traditional oils, R&F Pigment Sticks should be used on primed surfaces that are oil or acrylic gesso primed, to protect the surface from the natural acid in linseed oil.

What is the difference between R&F Pigment Sticks and Oil Pastels? Although both are made with pigments, waxes, and oils, they are completely different! Oil pastels typically contain a much higher wax content than an oil stick or bar, and are manufactured with a non-drying oil such as mineral oil or castor oil. Works done in Pigment Stick will oxidize (dry) over time like traditional oil paints, whereas oil pastels will always remain tacky and never dry, thus needing the protection of glass to protect the finished work.

Explore the versatility and loosely gestural qualities this medium has to offer, with professional quality Pigment Sticks from R&F!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these paint sticks! I got these sticks because I make my own encaustic paint. These oil sticks are rich and creamy and full of great pigment. They all come tucked in an encaustic cradled board, which is nice since I do encaustic painting. The packaging wasn’t great, they just slipped it into a padded envelope and during shipping two of the corners got chipped. It’s not terrible, but still. But the paints are great. Will definitely get more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brillant colors and so much enjoymet using them.I felt like a youngster again it was magical. I brought R&F Pigment Stick Sets on line from Jerry's Artist Outlet and found the sticks to be creatively awesome. I later went to the store and bought several other sticks. I just finished three paintings with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pigment Sticks are just plain FUN Although I have been painting for quite a long time, I had never used pigment oil sticks. I saw an advert on Amazon which kind of got me curious, but of course, I came over to Jerry's where there was better pricing and selections. Using the sticks was so freeing and exciting! So much more loose than brush work. I've got three more paintings lined up to use the sticks on and just plain anxious to get back to work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like painting with lipstick! I purchased this set to prepare for extensive landscape painting outdoors and here at home. I'm so glad I did. Like painting with lipstick--I have completely enjoyed the whole experience. The colors mix well and with a little medium, I can create vibrant paintings to my hearts content

What do you use to varnish with after the painting is finished? I plan on using these over acrylic. I assume I would need to use a varnish made for oils?

Asked by: ACou
When thoroughly dry, Pigment Sticks® can be varnished just as you would an oil painting. You would need to use a varnish acceptable for oil paint.
