Oils

Linseed, poppy and safflower oil are the vegetable oils used to create oil colour; these drying and semi-drying oils give each colour its different drying rate, consistency and colour.

Winsor & Newton Drying Oils, used in conjunction with oil colour, will modify the colours existing consistency, gloss and drying time. Using oils maintains the flexibility of paint films, particularly when working fat over lean, and prevents over-thinning, which can happen when using solvents.
