Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colour is a genuine oil colour made from modified linseed oil and modified safflower oil.
Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colour is a genuine oil colour made from modified linseed oil and modified safflower oil. It 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 artists to use this range for all oil colour techniques. The key difference between Artisan and conventional oils is their ability to mix with water. After painting, brushes can be cleaned with water. Artisan is popular with oil painters who do not like the smell of turpentine or wish to cut down or eliminate the use of traditional solvents. As a result painting with Artisan is less hazardous, which can be particularly useful in art schools or enclosed studio spaces. A range of unique Artisan Water Mixable Mediums has been developed to allow the full range of traditional oil colour techniques and styles to be achieved.
