Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd Oil Paints
Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd Oil Colour offers the advantage of faster drying times compared to traditional oil colours. This means that the traditional oil techniques of both impasto and glazing can be done in considerably less time and a painting can be completed in a single session. The full range of 50 colours are ideal for working outdoors.
Winsor & Newton have over 170 years of experience in the making of oil colours. The choice of raw materials, formulation and manufacture of Griffin Alkyd Oil Colour reflects this experience and provides a product of absolute excellence. As with all Winsor & Newton colours, every colour in the range is individually formulated to take advantage of the natural characteristics of each pigment and to ensure the stability of the colour.
Because alkyd resin has physical properties that differ slightly from those of traditional oils, the pigment load is somewhat different as well. Experienced painters will notice slightly greater transparency compared to Artists' Oil Colour. The colour has been formulated to offer the greatest degree of tinting strength possible (consistent with good handling properties), and to take full advantage of the true characteristics of each pigment.
Single pigments are used wherever possible to create individual colours. Combined with strength of colour, single pigments provide a wide colour range in themselves and offer cleaner, brighter mixtures with infinite hues. This is particularly important for violets, greens and oranges. Single pigment 'secondaries' considerably broaden the artists' available spectrum.
