Winsor & Newton's Artisan Beginners Set is ideal for new artists looking to find their niche as well as experienced artists transitioning away from solvent based oil paints. This set includes 6 different 37ml tubes of Winsor & Newtons Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colors, chosen to provide a basic yet versatile pallet for all skill levels.
Winsor and Newton's Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colors are formulated to be thinned and cleaned with water, regardless of containing modified linseed and safflower oils. By removing the need for solvents, those conscious of solvents within their studios, such as in schools and other shared spaces, or may have solvent sensitivities find the Artisan color line to be an ideal choice.
When compared to traditional oils, quality is never compromised when using Winsor & Newtons Artisan color line. Artists will notice the familiar thick consistency, color depth, lightfastness, opacity, transparency, permanence and drying times they expect when painting with conventional oil colors. Mix any of Winsor & Newtons Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colors with any Winsor & Newton Artisan oils, mediums, or varnishes to create unique effects. Mixing with the suggested products will guarantee colors remain water mixable.
In regards to diluting and thinning Winsor & Newtons Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colors, Winsor & Newton recommends treating water the same way one would treat any solvent or medium. Add sparingly to desired working colors to ensure proper flow is attained. Be aware, too much water can be added, resulting in pigment separating from the binder, producing cracks and instability once dry. Although the Artisan Oil Colors are specifically formulated to be water mixable, they remain compatible with traditional solvents. This may be necessary when slower evaporation rates are needed and will provide longer working times than water alone.
