Walnut oil for oil painting
Organic refined walnut oil is slow-drying, non-toxic and suitable to blend with mineral oil pigments to make natural oil paint.
Walnut oil in contrast to linseed oil doesn't yellow over time and has a long shelf life. Simply bring earth pigments onto a palette and pour a small amount of walnut oil on top. Mix with a palette knife or glass muller until you achieve a smooth, thick consistency.
Walnut oil is also great for thinning and adding fluidity to paint and for cleaning brushes. The paint is long lasting and can used on a variety of surfaces, such as canvas.
