We're moving!

645 S Los Angeles St with sign mock-up

After ten glorious years in our increasingly-crowded store, Raw Materials Art Supplies is moving to a new location! Located at 645 S. Los Angeles St., two blocks away from our current store, and at double the size, Raw Materials Art Supplies is going to be bigger (and deffer).

In addition to expanding our existing selection of fine art and architectural supplies, we will be able to offer in-store classes, workshops, and product demonstrations! We’ll update you on new developments on our website and social media, but just know that our new location is scheduled to open in mid-August, and until then we’re going to have a huge MOVING SALE.

More updates soon!

R&F Pigment Sticks

R&F Pigment Sticks: 15% off!

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 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.
