|What are Pigment Sticks?|
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 Pigment Sticks are handmade in small batches, carefully milled and molded. We use only the basic traditional materials: natural wax, linseed oil, and pigment, and we use them with absolute purity. Pigment Sticks are the only brand of oil sticks that employ only natural waxes (beeswax & plant wax). This allows for a minimum amount of wax. This results in softer consistency and greater paint film strength.
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. This balance is what makes our Pigment Stick so luscious and luminous. Consequently our formulas are complex and our manufacturing is labor intensive.
