This new range of Oils from Ken Bromley's are made in the UK from the finest pigments for durability and performance.
The full range of 47 colours in 60ml tubes was formulated originally for the professional user.
Each pigment is ground in a refined Linseed Oil with the exception of the whites in the range which use Safflower Oil in addition to Linseed Oil. Our paints are roller-milled in small batches for superior blending. There are other very small components to control flow and structure including genuine resin gum turpintine but these would be seen as generally chemically inert.
Ken Bromley's Artists' Oils offer you optimum quality at affordable prices.
Please note that products containing cadmium require careful handling and use.
This range of oils have been modified and some colours do have small quantities of driers, but the parts per million will be very small . Some colours naturally dry quicker than others. Liquin is a drying agent and can be added to the oil paint to speed up drying times.
As a dedicated oil painter I only use artists quality paint like Michael Harding and Blockx, etc, but some colours can be 'drop dead on the spot expensive';, so I was interested when I saw these.
They come in a well filled tube with no air pockets or oil separation of the colour and have good secure caps.
The consistency is not at all stiff but creamy like toothpaste yet will hold brushstrokes when used Impasto.
The colour is strong and vibrant, but leans to a dark viridian which I like as it stands tinting down with white.
It tints down very well indeed with Titanium white, Zinc white and Flake white without any problem.
It brushes out really well and mixes equally well with other colours and as expected is very transparent when used with thinner.
I will definitely be buying more of these paints as they are lovely to work with and a great product. David Molloy (Rossendale,, United Kingdom) on 23 Aug 2013
Tried out the Ken Bromley own brand for the first time ordered more the week after, totally satisfied.
Great, suit may needs exactly, rich & creamy & the 60ml come in a great wide range of colours to boot - nuff said! Robert Weir (Dumfries, United Kingdom) on 13 Oct 2013
These paints are a good texture, like toothpaste, well filled tubes with no air pockets or oil seperation, and they brush out really well. The tints don't grey out abnormally from the parent colour unless desired, in which case they grey out lovely.
As expected from Pthalocyanine the pigment is incredibly strong and goes a LONG WAY!
So beginners be careful of the strenght.
This colour mixes beautifully and mixed with white makes stunning skies and water, and a touch of any green gives a really fab turquiose. David Molloy (Rossendale,, United Kingdom) on 5 Sep 2013
