WINSOR & NEWTON GRIFFIN ALKYD OIL COLOUR 37ML - (S1) VANDYKE BROWN 676

RM 28.20


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.
