R&F Pigment Sticks are our unique version of an oil stick that will transform the way you paint. They are richly pigmented with a lipstick soft consistency that gives them the same fluidity, subtlety and durability of traditional oil colours. They have just enough natural wax added to maintain a solid stick form. Pigment Sticks let you get rid of the brush allowing you to work more directly on your surface. Their immediacy and mark making ability afford an endless range of options.

R&F Pigment Sticks® are oil paint manufactured with enough wax for the paint to be molded into stick form.  They allow the painter to draw or paint directly onto a surface without brushes, palettes, paint tubes or solvents.  R&F  uses only the basic traditional materials: natural wax (beeswax & plant wax), linseed oil, and pigment, and we use them with absolute purity. The result is an oil stick with a lipstick soft consistency.

Pigment Sticks have none of the additives, extenders, substitutes, or facilitators that are commonly used in industrial production.  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.  To do without them it is necessary to create a very precise balance of the ingredients.  Consequently R&F formulas are complex and our manufacturing is labor intensive and thus handmade in small batches, carefully milled and molded.
