Description

Natural drying oil used as a traditional binder for grinding oil colours. Has increased wetting power and imparts flexibility to paint films.

 

Constituents:
Linseed Oil. Extracted from Flax seed (Linum Usitatissimum) using cold pressing method.

 

Product Application:
Made by crushing the flax seed under great pressure, iconsidered to be the purest, most desirable form of linseed oil for making oil paints.
Linseed oil is the most widely used oil because when dry it forms the toughest, most resilient paint films.

Cold Pressed Linseed Oil has greater wetting power than refined linseed oils and is often recommended for hand milling of oil paints for this reason*.
Used even in small quantities, adds a loose, slippery quality when added to oil colours. The paint film will stay open and is easily moved or reworked for up to 24 hours.

Cold Pressed Linseed Oil when mixed with prepared oil colours removes the pronounced stroke to the brushmark, so that strokes of different directions and application do not show a marked ‘suede’ effect as often seen with Refined Linseed Oils.

Cold pressed linseed oils should be kept to a minimum as a medium to aid fluidity or transparency. If multiple layers of linseed oil are introduced, in the mediums added to oil colours, so the effects of future yellowing will be exaggerated.

Dries to a gloss finish.
