On Saturday, March 21, 2015 there will be a demonstration of R & F Painting Sticks at the A.I. Friedman Store in Port Chester, NY. These pigment sticks are high quality oil paint with just enough natural wax added to maintain a solid stick form. They can be thinned with turpentine or mineral spirits. They can be worked with mediums by dipping them into stand oil, linseed oil, alkyd mediums or resin gels. Pigment sticks can be mixed along side tube oils or used to draw over dried oil paintings. They can be manipulated with a paint knife until the paint is a buttery consistency so that it can be brushed or knifed onto the surface. This method can be used to mix colors on the palette or in the painting. They are very portable and with the wide palette of colors available, the possibilities are endless. These pigment sticks work well when incorporated into encaustic or mixed media paintings. Come see this demonstration from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Visit our website for your art, home and office needs.
