Traditional oil colour has a rich, thick, buttery quality fresh from the tube and is an exceptionally popular medium due to its versatility, offering the artist excellent results from the time-honoured techniques of blending and glazing, impasto and scumbling; the exact same can be said of Artisan.
Like traditional oil colour, Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colour is made from linseed oil and safflower oil. The only difference is the linseed oil and safflower oil used in the Artisan have been modified so that they will mix and clean up with water. Artisan has been specifically developed to appear and work just like conventional oil colour. The depth of colour, buttery consistency, lightfastness, opacity/transparency, performance and drying times of Artisan, allow an artists to use this range for all oil colour techniques.
Unique Winsor & Newton Artisan formulations, manufacture and quality control ensure an oil colour of absolute excellence, which is comparable if not better than many other conventional artists’ quality oil colours across the world.
