Pip Seymour Artists' Oil colours combine tradition and innovation using antique pigments alongside native earths and the standard selection of modern manufactured artist's quality pigments. Like all other Pip Seymour Products Artists' Oil Colours are manufactured in The heart of The Yorkshire Dales.
Each colour is expressed through a unique recipe to provide the artist with the best possible starting point for painting. The painting mediums, varnishes and solvents are carefully prepared using the highest grade raw materials to ensure optimum quality.
Pip Seymour's Artists' Oils are hand made oil colours, prepared carefully to give optimum colour resonance. Each colour batch is made in small quantities (up to 1 litre per batch), so that each batch of paint produced is unique.
According to the nature of individual pigments, some of our colours are machine ground,some prepared in a hand-milling machine, or simply ground by hand using a glass muller. The colours are prepared into English cold-pressed linseed oil, from a single estate farm. This oil is a limpid golden yellow colour, is free flowing (brush marks tend to settle out of paint films) and pressed without the addition of driers. Because these oil colours are made without drying agents, they dry out according to the nature of the pigments used.
We suggest a 10-20% addition of our Fast Drying Oil Glaze Medium, to ensure balanced drying times. The over use of driers can be the cause of failure of paint films, leading to cracking and wrinkling of the dried paint, loss of sheen and excessive darkening.
