FAQs

 

Are oil paints better than acrylic?

 

Both acrylic and oil based paints have their pros and cons, so neither is better than the other! It also depends on what kind of artwork you’re creating as to whether oil or acrylic paint should be used.

 

What is oil paint?

 

Oil paints in the tube are primarily vegetable oils (such as linseed oil) and pigment. Oils harden in a complex chemical process after they are applied to the canvas. They dry to a satin finish and can be thinned or thickened using various oil mediums. They can also be cleaned up with various solvents or brush cleaners. 

 

Are oil paints for beginners?

 

Absolutely! Oil based paints have a much slower drying time compared to acrylics, so you have more flexibility. Blending is also much easier with oil artist paints. 

 

Can I speed up or slow the drying time of my oil paints?

 

Yes we carry a great selection of oil painting mediums that will help you do this.

 

How do I clean up my oil paints?

 

The most common way to clean up oil based paints is to use an odourless solvent. These are lox-toxic alternatives to traditional industrial solvents. Completely odourless, low toxic solvents are the ideal turpentine replacement for artists concerned about exposure to harmful solvents. There are also a number of other solvent free options available for artists wishing to use more eco friendly options.  

 

What are water mixable oil paints?

 

Water mixable oils are an exceptional line of paints that are perfect for any painter. They’re based on a modified, water mixable oil binder, meaning that no harsh solvents, turpentine or mineral spirits are necessary in the painting or cleaning up process. 

This makes for a much healthier painting environment, with no toxic or odorous fumes to inhale.
