Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colour has been specifically developed to appear and work just like conventional oil colour.
The key difference between Artisan and conventional oils is its ability to thin and clean up with water. Hazardous solvents are not necessary for Artisan and artists can enjoy a safer painting environment, making it ideal for artists who share a work space, schools or painting at home.
The Artisan range consists of 40 colours and has a dedicated range of Artisan solvents, oils, mediums and varnishes, allowing you to achieve all oil painting techniques.
No Hazardous Solvents Required
Artists using conventional oil colour will require the use of solvents such as turpentine or white spirit (mineral spirits) for use when painting and for cleaning up their materials.
Artisan on the other hand can be thinned with water for painting and all brushes and equipment can be cleaned up with soap and water only.
This means that the use of hazardous solvents is not necessary with Artisan and as a result, artists can enjoy a safer painting environment. With this in mind, Artisan is ideal for:-
# Oil painters who are sensitive to, or simply want to avoid exposure to solvents such as white spirit (mineral spirits) or turpentine.
# Students and teachers in schools and colleges where the use of oil colour is prohibited because of the solvents.
# Artists working in shared studio space where the build up of solvent levels could lead to a harmful concentration of vapours and a generally an unpleasant odour.
# Artists who work within a small home environment and wish to reduce the odour of oil painting.
# For travel, all Artisan products (Colour & Mediums) can be transported on aeroplanes (subject to the agreement of the airline).
