Ready-to-use primer in a non-yellowing oil-modified alkyd resin medium

Winsor & Newton Oil Painting Primer is a ready-to-use primer in a non-yellowing oil-modified alkyd resin medium. No thinning or stirring is required. Oil Painting Primer can be applied directly to metal or porous surfaces (glue-sized canvas, untreated wood, hardwood, plywood, paper) with virtually no sinking in. A small amount of oil colour can be mixed into the Oil Painting Primer for tinted priming. The treated ground then accepts oil colours easily and without chalkiness or absorbency.

    Key Features:
  • Size: 500ml & 1000ml cans
  • Ready-to-use primer
  • Non-yellowing oil-modified alkyd resin medium
  • Can be applied directly to metal or porous surfaces (glue-sized canvas, untreated wood, hardwood, plywood, paper)
  • Used to prepare a surface before painting
  • A small amount of oil colour can be mixed into the Oil Painting Primer for tinted priming

Oil painting primer imparts a traditional oil base. Some artists prefer this and may find a slight increase in gloss and smoothness. Oil primed canvases may slacken off less than acrylic primed canvases. A coat of warm glue size is required first. As a result of their formulation, Winsor & Newton acrylic primers are also suitable for oil painting. They are popular because they dry quickly and do not require any sizing underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great covergae, for a great Price! Excellent coverage, fast drying, and gives a wonderful surface for an oil painter! I think it is priced very resonably, compared to the really pricey oil primers. This on is alkyd based, so basicly it's ready to be painted on in a week or so. Dries to the touch in 12-24hrs!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great product for the price! I am a multi-media artist, with experience in ink, watercolors & pastels. As I am allergic to linseed based products, I was really glad to find that Jerry's carry the water-soluble oil paints. Now, I can hopefully add another medium to my list.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than just water for washes As with all Winsor & Newton products, this is a good quality medium. I find that with the water-mixable oil paints, a little bit of medium (1 part medium to 10 parts water) makes the initial application of thin washes flow better. Be careful not to use too much because you don't want to upset the "fat over lean" principle for proper paint adhesion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Medium for fast drying I use this when I have my Grandkids painting with me, so that it will dry quickly and they can take their project home without worry of it getting all over everything. The drawback is that it leaves a dull flat look. I suppose a coat of varnish may bring that oil painting shine back, haven't tried that yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from helps transition to water based oil as with most things new its hard to switch from what you know to a new thing.that has been my experience with water based oil, these mediums have made it easier since i dont miss any aspects of traditional oil mediums id grown accustomed to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A wonderful fume-free adventure I'm on oxygen and can't be around paint thinner or even fumes anymore. Used oils for 50+ years. Greatly dislike acrylics, so the water-mixable oils are a good alternative. Am grateful they are available.

Can this primer be used to cover an old oil painting that has been sanded?

Asked by: samJ
Yes, this primer could be used to cover that old canvas. I would suggest that you clean the surface before applying the primer. Many old paintings that have been stored for years are dusty, dirty, and some even get a little greasy. Dust can be dealt with by wiping the painting with a damp cloth and leaving it to dry. If there's any grease on the painting, wash it lightly with a solution of rubbing alcohol and let it dry overnight. You can then paint on it as usual. Be sure that you don't overwash it. What you don't want to see is any paint color on your cleaning rag. This is a sign that you are cleaning it too much and getting into the paint layers rather than removing the dirt on top of it. Once the painting is dry, you can either continue painting or begin to cover up or remove the old layer of paint.
