Sorry, this product is no longer available. A professional line of oil paints formulated to the highest standards. These oils feature high pigment load and excellent mixing power. Color intensities replicate those of handcrafted, limited edition-oils produced prior to the invention of the collapsible tube in the 1840s. The consistency is silky, not oily, enabling the artist to paint the thinnest layers or thick impasto brush strokes with ease. The powerful, intense colors were created using techniques dating back to the days of the Old Masters. No fillers or extenders are used. No driers are added to even up the drying time of each pigment within the oil, preventing brittleness, cracking, and wrinkling. Colors are ground in the highest-quality linseed oil which is first cold pressed, then further refined. The exceptions are titanium white #1, which is ground in safflower oil, and Cremnitz white #2, which is ground in walnut oil. Titanium white #3 is ground in linseed oil with the addition of driers.
