Winsor & Newton Drying Oils

Drying and semi-drying oils are the vegetable oils used to make oil colour, namely linseed, poppy and safflower. The different methods of processing oils produces products with different drying rates, consistencies and colour.

Drying oils are used to modify the consistency and drying time of colour in much the same way as prepared mediums. We offer a range of drying oils to suit your different needs.

Cold-Pressed Linseed Oil - A slightly yellow oil, which is extracted without the use of heat. This can be added to colour to reduce the consistency, improve flow, and increase gloss and transparency whilst reducing brush marks. Thin with Turpentine or Artist's White Spirit.

This oil dries slightly quicker than refined lineseed oil and may have better flow with some colours.

Bleached Linseed Oil - A refined pale oil of slightly increased viscosity, which will improve the flow of colours and dries slightly faster than Refined Linseed Oil.

This oil is thinner and paler than thickened linseed oil and is useful for use with white and pale colours. It dries slightly slower than Thickened Linseed Oil.

Thickened Linseed Oil - A pale refined oil of syrupy consistency. This speeds the drying time even more than Bleached Linseed Oil, improves flow and gloss and increases the durability of the film.

This oil behaves like Linseed Stand Oil but is dries quicker and darker.

Drying Linseed Oil - This is an oil of darker colour than Refined Linseed Oil, which promotes the fastest drying rate of all the oils whilst increasing gloss.

Refined Linseed Oil - Our most popular oil offers many of the same qualities as Cold Pressed Linseed Oil, but is slower drying. It is an alkali-refined oil of pale colour that reduces oil colour consistency and increases gloss and transparency.

Linseed Stand Oil - A pale viscous oil that can be mixed with Turpentine or White (Mineral) Spirit to improve the flow and levelling of oil colour. Retards drying but imparts a tough, elastic finish. Use in conjunction with Turpentine or Artists' White Spirit to improve colour flow. It is well suited for glazing and for fine detail and is resistant to yellowing while increasing the durability of the film. It slows drying and is the best oil to choose as an additive medium.

WARNING - Follow manufacturers health labeling instructions. Keep out of reach of children. Shipping restrictions apply.
