Griffin Alkyd Oil Paint 37ml Tubes

  • Description
  • MORE INFO

Griffin Fast Drying Oil Colour offers the excellent 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, and greater transparency means increased depth and clarity for glazes.

Oil colour has been used in various forms since the fifteenth century. Its rich, voluptuous nature, unique aroma and extraordinary versatility has ensured that it still maintains its standing as one of the most popular painting media today. Winsor & Newton began making colours in 1832, swiftly developing and subsequently maintaining a reputation for unparalleled excellence and consistency. Using this wealth of colour making experience,Winsor & Newton have developed a range of new and improved Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colour which offers unique features not found in traditional oils or acrylics. With this range the artist can enjoy all the benefits of using a conventional oil colour together with the convenience of completing a painting which is touch dry within a day.

Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colour is a genuine oil colour made from pigment and oil modified alkyd resin which can be thinned using conventional oil colour solvents. It is this unique formulation which allows Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colour to dry quicker than most oil colours but slower than acrylics. The oil modified alkyd resin binder includes a solvent which is necessary to control the drying rate and consistency of the colour. This enhances the transparency and luminosity of Griffin Alkyd Colour. The binder used also produces a more fluid consistency than traditional oils. The Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colour Range has undergone a number of changes and improvements. The range offers the artist a range of 48 colours which are available in 37ml size tubes. Each colour has been specially selected to offer the greatest choice and flexibility to artists and the ability to select the palette which suits their work. Full details are available in the Technical Section. Improvements in lightfastness have been made across the range using new, high durability pigments. All Griffin Alkyd Colours are now rated AA or A and are recommended as permanent for artists’ use.

User Reviews

Review this item
  • I would recommend this range to anyone.

    Self taught in use of traditional oils some years ago but found drying time a problem - gave up painting for around 15 years and changed to acrylics when starting up again a year ago. Great to use for quick completion but now drying time far too quick for subtle effects/blending etc. Decided to move to alkyds - a brilliant compromise in terms of drying time and although the range of colours is not as great as with traditional paints there is sufficient width to achieve any colour & effect one needs. I agree with a previous reviewer regarding waste etc but if small amounts are put on pallette this need not be a problem. Paintings can be completed very quickly - glazes applied very soon after main colours etc - although just an enthusiastic amateur I would recommend this range to anyone.

  • Whole griffin alkyd range

    Griffin alkyd is an extremely good product for me, because I like the quick drying nature of the paint, but also being able to blend like traditional oils. Shelagh Ward (Falkirk, United Kingdom) on 22 Jun 2012

  • Following up the comments of Geoff Mills...

    Just a follow up to the comments below by Geoff Mills regarding paint wastage. I keep my alkyds that are on my palette in the fridge overnight and this allows me to use them again the next day. The paints already mixed on the palette are not usable but the main blobs of colour are and I just transfer them to a new palette the next day and they are fine for at least 2 to 3 days like that, by storing them in the fridge overnight. You can also mix in a small amount of linseed oil to keep the whole palette workable for the next day but this will also mean the painting takes longer to dry.
