Description

This Winsor & Newton Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colour Studio Set represents yet another technological feather in the cap of a company best-known for its heritage.

  • Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colour has the appearance and handling of conventional oil colours, but you don’t need solvents to thin or clean it up, just water.
  • That makes it safer and odour-free, ideal for shared studio spaces, schools and colleges or home use.
  • Winsor & Newton has put together a balanced range of 40 colours that includes a high number of single pigments, each colour formulated with modified linseed or safflower oils (please be aware that this means drying times vary across the range).
  • Winsor & Newton Artisan products can be transported on aeroplanes, subject to the agreement of the airline.

Please note the colours in this set may vary depending on the stock at Winsor & Newton.

Q&A (4)
Q What brush should I use to paint oil?
A

The coarse hair used for hog brushes is firm and springy, and lends the brush the strength it needs to manage the weight and thickness of oil paint. Their hard-wearing nature also allows them to withstand the solvents and harsh substances needed for cleaning oil paint from brushes. Should you prefer to use synthetic brushes, any synthetic brush built specifically for use with oil paint will have very similar properties to hog brushes.

Q What are the benefits of painting oil as oppose to acrylic or watercolour?
A

All three types of painting offer very different experiences. Oil paints boast beautiful colour depth and blending properties and their long drying time allows the painter the flexibility to make changes over longer periods of time than when painting with acrylic or watercolour. Oil painting is one of the more traditional art practices and holds historical significance, the oldest discovered oil painting dating back as far as the 7th century.

Q What surfaces do oil paints work best on?
A

Canvas is a popular surface for painters using oil colour. You can also paint onto oil paper, wooden panels or non-absorbent materials such as metal or glass. All surfaces will need to be correctly prepared before using with oil colour to ensure the paint grips to the surface, as well as avoid any risk of the oil base of the paint seeping through the surface. You can ensure that your surface is safe to use with oil paint is by priming it beforehand with gesso.

Q Water mixable oil paint allows for solvent free working. What benefits does this give ?
A

Some of the benefits include: no harmful fumes from the solvents, thus making it safer to work in enclosed studios & spaces. You can also clean your materials easier, using just water.

10th October 2014 Reviewed by Natalie Maguire The price from Cass Art was very good value. The product seems good. Useful if you don't want to use turpentine, obviously. The only quibble is the absence of black in the selection.

14th March 2014 Reviewed by Jennifer Bloor I am in a cramped studio class and use these because all my materials have to be put on one chair beside my easel. It's easier to clean up afterwards. The quality of the oils is very good and the whole class uses them so I would recommend them to anyone, amateur or professional.

20th November 2013 Reviewed by Linda Hellaby The Artisan water based oils are a good introduction to working in oils. They can also be used at an art class as they are much easier to use than the traditional oil paints.
