Michael Harding Oil Paint 40ml

mh40mlMy paints are made by hand, using techniques which date back to the days of the Old Masters. There is a very simple reason for this painstaking process. As an artist and painter I wanted to create colours that were true and vibrant, and paint which was beautiful and durable.

The greater the pigment content of a paint the greater the resistance it has to fading. Nearly all manufacturers use various fillers to extend the volume of the oil paint. It may increase profits but it compromises on quality. I totally refuse to do this. Why make something exceptional and then dilute it?

I will not claim that my paints will turn you into a great painter, but I can promise they will have a profound effect on your work. Your colours will be stronger and richer, and you will find the texture of the paint incomparable. You will love working with them.

Try them. You will be amazed

Sennelier Clarified Linseed Oil 75ml

Allows to thin the paint while maintaining its initial appearance.

Purified oil, naturally a little amber, extracted from flax seeds. More drier and more resistant than most other oils. Tends to turn yellow over time. Preferably used with dark or slightly drying tones. Presents extreme transparency. Gives body to the dough. Avoid excess.

Sennelier Boiled Linseed Oil 75ml

It liquefies the paint and accelerates hardening and a gloss finish.

Boiled linseed oil encourages the finish to dry deeply. Gives texture and roundness to the finish while drying more quickly than normal linseed oil and it adds a brilliant, slightly amber finish. Avoid excess.

Sennelier Stand Oil 75ml

Allows you to significantly attenuate or smooth thin brush strokes.

Linseed oil polymerised in the absence of air. Full bodied, very bright, clear,
honey-like viscosity, medium made by heating pure linseed. Improves transparency, fluidity and smooths brushstrokes. Can be used straight but, due to high viscosity, it is preferable to thin with spirits. Excellent medium for glazing and detail work. Reduces possible appearance of cracking. Slows drying. Slightly yellowing. Favors gloss.
