Oil Paint without Solvents made with walnut oil has been preferred by artists for centuries. It provides rich, vibrant colour that is naturally more alive and brilliant. They chose to build their oil paint with walnut oil because its unique refractive index and non-yellowing nature produces colour that is more naturally alive and brilliant. In addition walnut oil allows them to increase the amount of pigment in each colour, resulting in extraordinary richness, colour saturation, brilliance and tinting strength.
Free your studio of dangerous solvents by using walnut oil in place of turpentine or odourless mineral spirits when cleaning brushes. Walnut oil removes colour from the artist’s brush or tool as effectively as odourless paint thinners, without creating a solvent hazard. Walnut oil is a natural vegetable oil that neither evaporates nor removes essential oils. The addition of walnut oil to colour will increase flow and slow the drying.
