Quality is of the utmost importance to us. However, we believe very strongly that paints THAT WE SELL must be of excellent quality- it is ALSO paramount that they offer EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONE. We keep an excellent range of oil paints that will suit everyone's budget.
Oil Colors contain a full pigment load suspended in a binder, generally linseed oil or another drying oil such as safflower oil, poppyseed oil, or walnut oil. Use them on stretched canvas or boards that have been primed to accept oil paints. Professional-grade paints mix more cleanly and have better tinting strength than lower-grade paints.
Student Grade Oil Colors have working characteristics similar to professional oils, but with lower pigment concentrations and a smaller range of colours — typically only one series. Student oils often have pigment mixes instead of single pigments, and more expensive pigments are generally replicated by hues, which may not have the same mixing characteristics as full-strength colours.
