New to Pegasus Art is Schmincke Norma Professional Oil Paints, part of our increasing range of oil paint supplies, a premium oil colour for discerning artists. Pegasus Art stock all the colours available in the large 120ml tube size, 48 oil painting colours.
The Schmincke Norma is an artist oil paint made from the best genuine artists' pigments which are ground by the tradional three-cylinder mill method. The high concentration of pigment is mixed with the optimum quantity of linseed oil. The oil paint is left to rest and mature for approximately 3 months before the tubes are filled. This maximises pigment and oil absorbtion.
All oil painting colours have a balanced creamy buttery consistency. The Schmincke laboratory have tested all oil colours and their degree of lightfastness is 4 to 5 stars.
In addition the maturing process and optimisation of all the oil paints ensures that the drying process is shortened and proceeds evenly for all colours.
