Pigment Bar is produced by Jaeyeol Han himself and used in his artworks since 2017. 

It is oil paint manufactured with enough wax for the paint to be molded into bar form. They allow the painter to draw or paint directly onto a surface without brushes, palettes, paint tubes, or solvents. etc. The result is an oil stick with a lipstick soft consistency. It has none of the additives, extenders, substitutes, or facilitators that are commonly used in industrial production. While the use of these adulterations can save time and reduce cost, they lower the quality of the paint. To do without them it is necessary to create a very precise balance of the ingredients. Consequently, our formulas are complex and our manufacturing is labor-intensive, handmade in small batches, carefully milled and molded. 

It does not conform to the color chart of the ready-made oil colors, but In addition to the basic colors such as primary colors, we produce colors that reflect the artist's senses. For example, a fluorescent yellow, pink, that reflects light in response to ultraviolet light. Also, we didn't use linseed oil even if production costs went up to prevent the painting from turning yellow over time. It minimizes chemical odors, therefore, it can be used comfortably in a small space, and oil painting is easy without the need for tools and materials such as brushes and oil. However, at the same time, if you melt and dilute The Pigment Bar with oil, you can draw it with a brush like liquid paint.
