What Are Oil Paints?
Oil paints (oil-based paints) are highly regarded in the artist community and one of the most versatile forms of painting. Oil paint gives a "richness" and depth of colour that is unsurpassed by any other medium and many professionals will only use oil paints. They take a long time to dry, but the results are amazing. These oil based paints can be blended, which is an added benefit when you are trying to achieve certain colors. Oil paints are known for being durable and holding their color for a long time and are slow to dry, which allows and artist to rework the paint to achieve the desired effect. Many artists today consider oil painting to be the fundamental art medium. Our best selling well-known oil paints include LUKAS 1862, Soho Oils, DaVinci, Holbein, Grumbacher, Winsor & Newton, Maimeri, and Sennelier.

Remember, you can't use soap and water to clean oil paints out of your brushes. It is best to soak them in some type of paint thinner or alcohol.
