WINSOR & NEWTON GRIFFIN ALKYD OIL COLOUR 37ML - (S1) INDIAN YELLOW 319
Faster drying time than traditional oil colour
- Following the popularity of acrylic colours, which dry in 10-20 minutes, oil painters began requesting a product which dried faster than traditional oils.
- Alkyds are made from a naturally derived vegetable oil that is polymerized. The result is a resin-like product that, when mixed with a solvent, is very similar to traditional linseed oil.
- The colours remain workable for 4 to 8 hours and are touch dry in 18 to 24. Consistent drying times across the range removes the usual restrictions that come with conventional oils, making it easier to overpaint, regardless of the colour upon the surface.
Indian Yellow is a vibrant yellow pigment which has been used by artists such as Turner. Originally a colour created in India from the urine of cows exclusively fed on mango leaves, Winsor & Newton created an alternative closely resembling the original.
