  1. Golden Fluid Acrylic 473ml

    Golden Fluid Acrylic 473ml

    Starting at: £38.60

    Equal the intensity of GOLDEN Heavy Body Acrylics but with an even, flowing characteristic useful for dry brush application, fine details, pouring, spraying, staining techniques and many others. Fluids are created by loading an acrylic polymer binder with concentrated levels of quality pigments for a wide selection of permanent and lightfast colors. No fillers or extenders are added to achieve the desired consistency, nor is the fluid quality achieved with additional water. GOLDEN Fluid Acrylics have the same pigment load as the Heavy Body Acrylics, but in a viscosity similar to heavy cream. *Please note, this range is stored offsite. Please allow extra time for your order to be processed and dispatched. Learn More

  4. Schmincke Medium W

    Schmincke Medium W

    Starting at: £8.05

    Schmincke Medium W is an odourless, jelly-like ("lean") medium for mixing oil colours with water instead of organic solvents such as turpentine or turpentine substitute. It increases gloss and transparency, reduces viscosity and harmonizes the drying process.

    Dosage: 50%

    Thinner: Water

  5. Roberson Poppy Oil

    Roberson Poppy Oil

    Starting at: £8.80

    Poppy Oil is a slightly later addition to the artist's cabinet than Linseed Oil and Walnut Oil. It is generally used as a binder for pale colours, where the warmth of Linseed Oil is not desired. It provides a matte finish and dries very slowly, so we would not advise using it in conjunction with slow-drying pigments or in underpaintings. A paint film produced by Poppy Oil is weaker and softer than that created by Linseed Oil. This is because it contains a smaller percentage of linolenic acid than Linseed Oil; this substance imparts both strength and yellowness to an oil.  

    Although some of these properties can be perceived as drawbacks, paints made with Poppy Oil generally obtain a "short" or buttery texture without the addition of waxes or other additives, which can be an advantage for certain colours that produce poor consistencies in Linseed oil alone. Sometimes, the addition of a small quantity of Poppy Oil when grinding a tricky or "stringy" pigment in Cold Pressed Linseed Oil can introduce some of benefits of Poppy Oil, without transmitting its negative characteristics.

    Paints made with Poppy Oil are particularly suited to "alla prima" working methods, where paint is applied spontaneously. When working in successive layers, Poppy Oil would only be appropriate for the final stages of a painting.

  6. Cornelissen Walnut Oil

    Cornelissen Walnut Oil

    Starting at: £6.50

    The introduction of Walnut Oil as a pigment binder is contemporaneous with the emergence of Linseed Oil. Their drying properties have been appreciated since the Middle Ages, and throughout history there is evidence of both oils being used alongside each other within the same painting. In fact, until the sixteenth century, it is believed that Walnut Oil was the preferred binding medium among Italian artists. It is made from mature walnut kernals, offering a pale colour and brilliant gloss. For this reason, it is sometimes chosen as a binder for light colours, as it provides a stronger paint film than Poppy Oil, and faster drying times. However, a paint film made from Walnut Oil will tend to be brittle, so it is more suited to a rigid support rather than canvas.

  7. Six Bells Orange Ochre

    Six Bells Burnt Ochre Oil Paint

    £28.00

    Colour From the Mines 

    Six Bells Burnt Ochre has been developed by artist Onya McCausland by recycling waste iron oxide residues resulting from the treatment of mine water in ex-industrial coal mining landscapes into pigment that can be used for the manufacture of paint. Each tube of Six Bells Burnt Ochre paint is individually numbered of the first edition of 1000 40ml tubes. The paint has been manufactured in collaboration with Michael Harding paints in his Cwmbran factory in 2020.

  8. Roberson Safflower Oil

    Roberson Safflower Oil

    Starting at: £6.40

    Safflower Oil is light-coloured, making it suitable for grinding pale pigments. It is still sometimes used as a binder for commercially available paints, although due to its very slow drying time it is best reserved for the final layers of a painting. Compared to Linseed oil, Safflower Oil will give a matte finish.

  9. Casein Lactic

    Casein Lactic

    Starting at: £18.30

    Casein is a protein derived from dried milk, which has been used in painting since ancient times. It can be combined with Ammonium Carbonate to form an emulsion, which acts as a durable, non-resoluble binder for pigments, producing a matte, fast-drying paint, similar in appearance to egg tempera. We use casein as a binder for our L. Cornelissen & Son Pigment Colour Charts, as it is a medium that clearly showcases the characteristics and behaviour of each pigment in its pure form. Casein paints can be applied in thin layers to watercolour paper, but would require a more rigid support, such as a gesso panel, to be applied thickly, as the comparative inflexibility of the paint layer means that it can be prone to cracking. Subsequent layers of paint should be more diluted to aid adhesion, and impasto effects are not recommended. It is possible to varnish casein paintings using an acrylic or damar varnish to obtain a glossy surface if desired, although this is not a necessary step. Casein can also be used as an ingredient in gesso, and is a suitable binder for fresco secco techniques.

    Some pigments may require a wetting agent in order to fully disperse within the binder, in which case alcohol may be used.

  10. Raw Sienna Pigment

    Raw Sienna Pigment

  11. Terre Verte Pigment

    Terre Verte Pigment

    Starting at: £4.00

    Terre Verte, sometimes known as Green Earth, is a natural earth pigment derived from clay coloured by iron silicate. As with other natural pigments, impurities can prevent it from fully dispersing in an acrylic binder, although it is a popular pigment in all other mediums. It has been in use since antiquity, providing excellent lightfastness and great transparency, with a low tinting strength. It requires a high volume of oil, and dries slowly to create a soft, flexible paint film. When calcined, Terre Verte becomes Burnt Green Earth.

    Starting at: £4.00

    Natural earth pigment, calcined raw sienna. Good tinting strength and very lightfast. Stable in all media but can be difficult to disperse in acrylic binders. Fast to medium drying rate in oil. Dates back to antiquity.
