Artisan Water Mixable Oil Colour (W&N) feed


Winsor & Newton's 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, painting in a more confined area, or for those with allergies to the solvents necessary for painting with standard oils.  

The Artisan range consists of a wide range of colours and has a dedicated range of 11 Artisan solvents, oils, mediums and varnishes, allowing you to achieve all oil painting techniques - please do not try to use normal oils, mediums and varnishes with this range of colours - they are not designed to mix with these substances.

Hints & Tips

Carry your water in your brush!

No need to take lots of equipment out with you - take an Aquash brush and your watercolour pencils and sketch on the move.
