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.

Who are Winsor & Newton?

In 1832, William Winsor and Henry Newton introduced the first moist water colours to the world. Today, Winsor and Newton remain the premier choice for artists, offering a wide variety of fine art supplies including: oil, water colour, acrylic and alkyd paints, pastels, artists' brushes, canvases, papers and portfolios.

Good coverage and quite quick to dry considering it is oil based. Gives a very slick surface which is lovely to paint on . If you want a less slippery finish then add a bit of marble dust,pumice or even poly filla powder. Experiment!
