M. Graham & Co. Oil Color
The most beautiful and easily worked color produced today. Each color is created slowly, one at a time, to offer clarity, depth, richness and permanence without peer. Crafted only from artists' pigments, free from extenders or adulterants and dispersed in pure non-yellowing American walnut oil, these colors provide a distinctive and traditional value. Completely permanent, intermixable and compatible with all other oils, varnish and mediums including alkyd resin products.
Why Walnut Oil
Oil Paint made with walnut oil has been preferred by artists for centuries. It provides rich, vibrant color that is naturally more alive and brilliant. Free flowing and slower drying, our oil paints enable delicate passages of finely blended color that will retain its brilliance over time.
Oil Painting without Solvents
Free your studio of dangerous solvents by using walnut oil in place of turpentine or odorless mineral spirits when cleaning brushes. Walnut oil removes color from the artist’s brush or tool as effectively as odorless paint thinners, without creating a solvent hazard. Walnut oil is a natural vegetable oil that neither evaporates nor removes essential oils. The addition of walnut oil to color will increase flow and slow the drying.
M. GRAHAM Color
M. Graham spend hours milling their colors to coax the highest pigment loads into their paints. In order to make truly beautiful color you must load as much pigment as possible into the paint paste. More pigment makes the color more brilliant. More vibrant. It provides a vitality that can’t be achieved by manufacturers who get by with less.
