What is Oil Colour?
Oil colour is produced by the combination of a pigment with a natural oil binder, such as linseed, walnut and poppy oils. This is then applied to a support such as canvas. The pigment fixes to the support upon dehydration and oxidation of the oil, forming a hard film on the surface.
Oil colours are oil-based, so any brush used to apply the oil colour paint should be thoroughly cleaned after use with either a solvent or brush cleaner.

Why use Oil Colour?
Oil colour dries slowly, offering artists flexibility and time to make modifications. The slow drying properties of oil colour means they are excellent for creating subtle blends, affording the artist smooth transitions in their painting.
How long does Oil Colour take to dry?
Oil colour tends to become touch dry in 2-12 days. However, every pigment reacts differently when mixed with oil, resulting in varying drying times. It is important to know the drying times of the oil colours used, so that slower-drying oil colour is painted over faster-drying layers, in order to avoid cracking. Winsor & Newton provide further information on Understanding The Drying Times For Oil Colour.
There are a number of ways that the drying times of oil colours may be altered. Adding Winsor & Newton Liquin Original increases the drying rate by approximately 50%, whereas introducing a Painting Medium will change the rate of drying, as well as influencing the gloss and texture of the colour.
