You can be sure that you get the best Art Supplies at the best prices when you shop with Pullingers. We have put together a selection of the top brands of Artists Oil Paints at the lowest prices for all artists, whatever their ability and budget.
Artists Oil Paints are traditionally made by mixing dry pigment with a drying oil. The most common oil used is linseed oil because it dries to durable film.
Another type of Oil Paint is Alkyd Oil Paint, where the vegetable drying oil is replaced by a synthetic alkyd resin. This type of oil has a faster speed of drying so it is great for underpainting, impasto and glazing.
Water-Mixable Oil Paint has a modified binder that allows it to accept water as a diluent. This type of Oil Paint is ideal for use in schools and art studios where strong smelling solvents can be a problem.
