Oil Paint Sets
So much can be done with some high quality oil paint sets. In terms of the technical side of things, oil paint is form of a slow-drying paint that is made up of particles of pigment suspended in a drying oil. It is this pigment in oil that forms a tough, coloured film when it is exposed to air. Handy sets of oil paints are ideal for travelling, working outdoors, getting started with oil paints or even as lovely gifts.
What are Oil Paints Used For?
In terms of what it is best used for, oil paints come into their own when they are blended into each other. It is this ability to offer a really smooth blend which puts them on another level from acrylics. This means that they are great when you are looking to create subtle variations in colour, moving from light into shadow. Although they are slow drying, they also present an element of versatility in the sense that they dry more quickly when diluted. We have some fantastic water mixable oils available in our range. So an oil paint set is a handy way to get started with oil paints and something that you will be able to have fun with.
