More Information

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.

A little goes a long way. Leaves a slight gloss but is great for making oil slippery and slightly transparent.

Have used Liquin for years and find it invaluable for oil painting and speeds up drying time dramatically so the painting can be finished much more quickly, and in my case, can be sent to the client via carrier a couple of days after completion. This would not be possible without Liquin.
