R&F Oil Pigment Sticks Hands-On Demo - FREE
R&F Handmade Paints has created a truly unique version of an oil stick that will transform the way that you paint. The Pigment Sticks are richly pigmented with a lipstick soft consistency that gives them the same fluidity, subtlety, and durability of traditional oil colors. Pigment sticks allow you to get rid of the brush allowing you to work more directly on your surface. Join artist Cari Hernandez at ARCH Art Supplies for this FREE workshop as she demonstrates these unique paints, and see for yourself how revolutionary they are. After a demonstration and Q and A, participants will have an opportunity to try these fabulous paints out during the last half of the demo. Click here to sign up.
