Sienna Yellow Extra Pale
Whether you call them oil sticks or pigment sticks, it means the same. It is like a tube of oil paint but in stick form. Pigment Sticks® are comprised of pure alkali refined linseed oil and purified natural plant and bee’s waxes. They contain no driers, no fillers or adulterants and no expedients of any kind. Because R&F does not use short cuts, the wonderful workability of R&F Pigment Sticks® depends upon a very careful balance of oil, waxes and pigment. The result is an intensively pigmented, handmade, traditional artist paint.
Our resident artist Oksana Zhelisko illustrates how to use pigment sticks in three ways.
1. Direct Draw
2. Thinned with oil medium and applied with a brush
3. Scoop some on a palette knife and work it over a canvas.
