Winsor and Newton – Artisan Beginners Water Mixable Oil Colour Set – 6 tubes – 37ml each – Winsor and Newton Artisan Water Mixable Oil paint has been specifically developed to appear and work just like conventional oil colour.
The key difference between Artisan and conventional oils is its ability to thin and clean up with water. Hazardous solvents are not necessary for Artisan and artists can enjoy a safer painting environment, making it ideal for artists who share a work space, schools or painting at home.
The Artisan range consists of 40 colours and has a dedicated range of 11 Artisan solvents, oils, mediums and varnishes, allowing you to achieve all oil painting techniques. Winsor & Newton have 175 years of experience in the making of oil colours. The choice of raw materials, formulation and manufacture of Artisan colours reflects this experience and produces a product of absolute excellence.
There is no water within the formulation of Artisan. The linseed oil and safflower oil vehicles have been modified to allow the colour to accept water, creating a stable emulsion, while retaining the working characteristics of conventional oil colour.
The range has also been formulated with a high proportion of single pigments for brilliance of colour and clean colour mixing. The most suitable oil and methods for dispersion have been selected to bring out the individual characteristics, from opacity to natural transparency, of each pigment in the Artisan range.
This set offers a basic six colour palette in 37 ml tube size.
