Q&A (6)
Q Hi, I wanted to ask if you have this Winsor and Newton Artists' Oil Colour Bamboo Wooden Box in stock available to buy at the shop in your Islington Branch. Thank you
A

We can't check their live stock but you can give them a call on 0207 354 2999 which is their direct line.

Q Please could you give me the size of the box
A

The Artists' Oil Box measures 38 x 27.8 x 8.6 cm 

Q What is the difference between the ‘series’?
A

Artist quality paints are priced in series numbers. These numbers are determined by the pigments used to create the paints, and depending on the how these pigments are sourced, these will differ in price. Colours of paint that are made using a pigment derived from precious stones for example will be more expensive than colours of paint that are made from an easily sourced pigment such as carbon. Only artist quality paints are priced in series numbers because they will only use ‘genuine’ single pigment, whereas beginner/student quality paints will often mix more economic pigments to create ‘hues’ of more expensive pigment in the interest of being cost effective.

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 Hi. Which 8 paint colours do you get with this set, and is there any room in the box for additional tubes of paint? Thanks
A

This set contains the following colours: Winsor Yellow, Crimson Alizarine, Winsor Blue (Red Hue), Winsor Green, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Ivory Black, Titanium White. However, these contents may vary, if the manufacturer is out of stock of certain colours. There isn't any additional room for more paints.

18th February 2014 Reviewed by Fiona Poynter I haven't started to use these yet but needed some new oil paints and this was a good way to stock up and re-start oil painting. The palette is clear plastic and it has some rough edges which is disappointing. I'd probably have preferred a wooden palette with rounded edges. Not sure how useful the rather small cloth will be as once it's soiled I guess it will be redundant. Both of the brushes included are a similar sixe are quite narrow. Unfortunately,the bristles were slightly misshapen from being stored in the box with nothing to protect them. I felt this box promised more than it delivered, even at half price.

19th December 2013 Reviewed by Natalie Crosland I am an oil paint debutante and look forward to having a go. I was surprised that W&N have gone down the tacky path with some of their contents, and the box. The palette was so badly cut out it could cut my hands, and I will have to sand the edges before use, and the label on the handle of the box said it was a watercolour set. The internal clips holding the palette need unscrewing before they can be moved to release it. The included pencil does not say what hardness it is. Otherwise, I am sure the paints and mediums will be fine but I hope W&N's quality control will not slip any further.
