Blending Medium is an R&F Pigment Stick without the pigment. It’s specially designed for blending edges, heightening transparency, and glazing colors. R&F Blending Medium is available in sticks or jars, with or without drier.
Medium with Drier contains a small amount of cobalt drier added to speed up the drying time.
R&F Pigment Sticks
Pigment sticks are oil paints manufactured with enough wax for the paint to be molded into a stick form, allowing the painter to draw or paint directly onto a surface without brushes, palettes, paint tubes or solvents. These pigment sticks are made in small batches, carefully milled and molded using beeswax and natural plant wax, linseed oil and pigment, with no additives, extenders, substitutes or facilitators, allowing for a softer consistency and for greater film strength.
R&F Pigment Sets
Give yourself or your artist the freedom of drawing and the advantages of the finest oil paints.
Handmade and richly pigmented, R&F Pigment Sticks are comparable in quality with the finest tube oil paints. They have a lipstick soft consistency that gives them the same fluidity, subtlety, and durability of traditional oil colors.
Pigment Sticks can be layered or mixed with traditional fine oil paints and mediums. They dry to a durable film, and can be used on any support proper for oil or encaustic painting.
R&F Encaustic Medium Pellets
Encaustic medium is encaustic paint without pigment. Used to extend colors and to create transparencies. It is made of the same 100% pharmaceutical grade beeswax and damar resin as the encaustic cakes.
