Winsor & Newton Solvents


Collapse 


Solvents are used to dilute colour, as well as for cleaning brushes and palettes after a painting session. Solvents made for artists are intended to be fully volatile, meaning that upon evaporation from the paint mixture, they leave no residual matter behind.

Hardware/DIY grade solvents, though lower in cost, are not refined to the degree required for artists, and will often leave a tacky painting surface where used, and a paint film that won't fully dry. We offer a range of solvents to suit your different needs.

Winsor & Newton Solvents:

  • Winsor & Newton English Distilled Turpentine. All solvents vary in strength and their capacity to 'loosen up' the body of the colour. The artists' grade solvent with the greatest power is Distilled Turpentine, the only artists' grade solvent capable of easily dissolving Dammar resin. Turpentine makes a viscous mixture, evaporates slowly, is the most hazadous and strongest smelling solvent commonly used by artists.
  • Winsor & Newton Sansodor Solvent. Makes a viscous mixture, evaporates slowly, is the least hazardous, costs approximately the same as turpentine, does not deteriorate on storage and has minimal odour. This is well suited to artists who prefer to avoid exposure to turpentine.
  • Winsor & Newton Winton Picture Cleaner. Not strictly a solvent, Artists' Picture Cleaner is a liquid which dissolves linseed oil oxidation by products and cleans soiled oil paintings. Emulsified mixture of Copaiba balsam, dipentene and pine oil with ammonia. The liquid settles out in two layers. Shake well before use. Thinning is not recommended.
