Winsor & Newton Oil Painting Primer:
What is a Medium?
Any liquid which changes the consistency of the paint it is mixed with may be classed as a medium. Artistic style and technique influence the choice of medium used, so Winsor & Newton provide a wide range of traditional oils and mediums to help control Oil Colour, as well as varnishes to protect work and provide a final finish.
Why use a Medium?
Choosing complementary oils, mediums and varnishes for oil colours is as unique as choosing a colour palette. By changing the properties of paint, a medium extends the possibilities of how an artist works with the colour, and affords a plethora of exciting techniques and effects.
Winsor & Newton Mediums Finder provides an easy, interactive method of choosing the correct medium, for the artist to achieve the desired effect.
Why choose Winsor & Newton Oil Painting Primer?
With no need to stir or thin, Winsor & Newton Oil Painting Primer can be used directly from the pot, or mixed with a small amount of oil colour for tinted priming. The treated ground will accept oil colours easily, and without chalkiness or absorbency.
