This live virtual demo offers a relaxed environment where participants can see and experience Pigment Sticks. Topics covered will include:
- How R&F Pigment Sticks allow artists to explore traditional and alternative methods of painting with oil by allowing them to draw or paint directly onto a surface with immediacy and fluidity
- What Pigment Sticks are (pigment and linseed oil); health and safety when working with Pigment Sticks (including proper disposal of oil soaked rags and paper towels)
- Appropriate supports and tools
- Transparent vs. opaque Pigment Sticks
- Building a surface, monoprinting, image transfer, mark making, and additional techniques (the use of cold wax, Gelli plates, etc.).
