Williamsburg Handmade Oil Paints
Williamsburg Handmade Oil Paints are a premium oil-based paint. Using top-quality pigments, colors are made in small batches to ensure high levels of control. These oil paints have excellent light fastness, possess a unique consistency & texture and are available in more than 140 colors.
Getting the proper pigment is just the beginning. So much of the quality of oil paint is in the grinding. Each color is ground to enhance the beauty and luminosity specific to that particular pigment. Some colors will feel slightly gritty; others extremely smooth. Cerulean Blue by Williamsburg Oil Paints has a beautiful velvet, light-absorbing surface with an extremely strong covering power. Siennas are often chunky or gritty to allow light to travel through the vehicle, exposing rich golden or mahogany undertones instead of just heavy, dull browns. Pigments are ground in pure, premium, alkali-refined linseed oil and made in batches no larger than five gallons at a time. This gives total control over the product, much like the late nineteenth-century French color makers. All the materials are hand measured, and every ounce of paint is scrutinized. Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors are used by the world's finest artists whose work can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MOMA in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, and the Beaubourg in Paris.
