More details

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. Designed to speed drying, improve flow and reduce brush stroke retention, Liquin Original is popular with artists for use as a general purpose medium. 

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 Original?

Available in 75ml, 250ml and 1 litre sizes, Winsor & Newton Liquin Original prevents colour yellowing and reduces oil 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 Original is not suitable for use as a varnish or final coat.

Great for value and quality, though the 1L sized tin could do with some kind of nozzle/cone to make pouring it out easier.
