Why choose Winsor & Newton Turpentine?
Slightly quicker drying than white spirit, Winsor & Newton Turpentine is suitable for use as a dilutent, to thin oil colour and clean brushes. It should be noted that the bottle must be kept tightly closed, and away from light, to prevent oxidation.
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.
