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 Artists’ Painting Medium?
Available in 75ml and 500ml sizes, Winsor & Newton Painting Medium prevents colour yellowing and dries slowly to a flexible gloss film. This medium is particularly suitable for oiling out and enriching dull patches.
