Slow Drying

Allowing artists more time to work on their piece; blending and adjusting.

Colour Intensity

Pigments are suspended in a binder of drying oil, creating vibrant colours that retain their brilliance over time. Oils have the same colour intensity from wet to dry (unlike acrylic paints).

Hog Bristle Brushes

Traditionally used for oil painting, these brush hairs have the stiffness & durability to manipulate thick oil paint & withstand use with solvents.


Painting Knives

Used for mixing or applying paint & are easily cleaned with a rag to remove paint off the metal blade.


Haven’t finished with the palette?

Pop into a sealable container and put it in the freezer to stop the paint drying out. 

Use Low Toxic Mediums

Low toxic and low odour, these solvents and mediums reduce harmful exposure from traditional solvents like turpentine.

They are great for the classroom or studio and less harsh on the skin. As always, make sure you are painting in a well-ventilated environment!


Keep Your Brushes Clean

After washing your brushes off in solvent, use a rag or paper towel to remove as much paint as possible from the brush. Gently lather brush cleaner into the hairs and rinse under warm water. Repeat if your brush is still leaving paint residue when wiped with a clean rag.


Why is there a price difference on different colours? 

Paints can be made with natural or synthetic pigments, which can affect the cost of the paint to buy. Earth colours like ochres and oxides will often be cheaper as the pigments are easier to attain, where as the synthetic made cadmiums and cobalts will be more expensive to produce.

Hues will be made to get an approximation of these more expensive paints, and will be a more affordable option. These hues will be a mix of colours and not a ‘pure’ pigment colour. You can check what pigments are in your paints by looking on the back of the tube.

Sennelier Oil Sticks

Oil Sticks can be used alone or in combination with oil colours in tubes. The oil stick colours can be used for an entire painting. They are applied directly to any traditional oil-painting support, such as canvas, wood panel or fine art paper. They need the same archival priming (acrylic gesso or oil ground) that oil paint requires. 

Techniques: blend with brush or finger, use with or without turpentine, apply straight from oil stick, palette knife or brush.
