Winsor & Newton Solvents
Winsor & Newton Solvents for oil paints are used to dilute oil colour, as well as for cleaning brushes and palettes after a painting session. Solvents made for artists are intended to be fully volatile, meaning that upon evaporation from the paint mixture, they leave no residual matter behind.
Hardware / DIY grade solvents, though lower in cost, are not refined to the degree required for artists, and will often leave a tacky painting surface where used and a paint film that won't fully dry. We offer a range of solvents to suit your different needs.
