Winsor & Newton Artist oil paints are made using only the purest pigments with the most suitable drying oils. Each colour is individually formulated to optimise and enhance the pigments’ natural characteristics to provide covering power, tinting strength and stability.
The buttery, stiff consistency of Artists’ Oil Colour is ideal for retaining brush or palette knife strokes and can be thinned to a very fine glaze.
The sheen reflects the pigments used and the different levels of oil in each formulation, so the gloss level varies across individual colours. This can be controlled through the selection of surface, the addition of solvent and the mediums used.
