Winsor & Newton Oil Colour Mediums is a collection of mediums designed to enhance the creations of artists working with oil colour, such as Winsor & Newton’s Artist’s Oil and Winton Oil colour ranges. A quick drying, semi-gloss medium, Liquin Impasto thickens and extends tube colour, retaining crisp textures and brush marks without any visible levelling.
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 Liquin Impasto?
Available in 60ml and 200ml tubes, Winsor & Newton Liquin Impasto resists colour yellowing and reduces the drying time of oil colours by 50%, leaving paint touch-dry in 1 to 6 days, depending on thickness. It should be noted that Liquin Impasto is not suitable for use as a varnish or final coat.
