Oilbar represents the exciting possibility of drawing directly on the canvas with wet colour. The high level of pigmentation provides strength and depth of colour, superior in every way to oil pastels or crayons. Oilbar also has the physical advantage of producing a dry film.
This is a general term applied to liquids or gels that are used to mix and protect oil paints. Turpentine (thinners): - Used to thin down paint and this or white spirit is used to clean up . Low Odour Thinners Sansadour is a substitute for those who are allergic to or dislike the smell of turpentine. Linseed oil: - mix with oil colours, with or without thinners to reduce the consistency, retards drying. Alkyd Medium: - an additive to increase the transparency and minimise brush marks, also reduces drying time. Gel Medium and Alkyd White: - both of these are alkyd formulae, which reduce drying times and have minimal effect on viscosity. The Gel medium produces durable glazes and Alkyd White makes tints that dry faster when compared with tints using Oil Colour Whites.
One of the oldest mediums for fine art painting, dating back to Roman Egypt and used by most of the Great Masters of the Renaissance. Egg Tempera imparts pure translucent colour with a distinctive luminosity and matt satin finish. Today, Daler-Rowney are one of the few artists' colourmen to offer it ready-mixed in tubes-widely used by professional art restorers and specialist painters worldwide High quality pigment is dispersed in liquid egg yolk, according to a formulation dating back to 1906 The freshness of the colour relies largely on economy of brush stroke. Thin layers of colour well-diluted with water and carefully applied in one-stroke washes to a well-planned painting, produce the wonderful translucent effect associated with the finest egg tempera paintings.
