Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oils

Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colours, offer the excellent advantage of faster drying times compared to traditional oil colours, which means that the traditional oil techniques of both impasto and glazing can be done in considerably less time and a painting can be completed in a single session. The full range of 48 colours are ideal for working outdoors, and greater transparency means increased depth and clarity for glazes. Griffin Alkyd paints are a bit more fluid in consistency than tranditional oils and they dry with a somewhat more reflective surface, too.
Because alkyd resin has physical properties that differ slightly from those of traditional oils, the pigment load is somewhat different as well and experienced painters will notice slightly greater transparency compared to Artists' Oil Colour. The colour has been formulated to offer the greatest degree of tinting strength possible (consistent with good handling properties), and to take full advantage of the true characteristics of each pigment.
All colours in the range remain workable on the palette for 4 to 8 hours, and are touch dry on the canvas in 18 to 24 hours. The drying time will be affected by the thickness of the paint and the temperature of the environment, however. Thorough drying prior to varnishing is essential, and should be a minimum of three months in thin films of colour.
Speed of drying makes Griffin Colour ideal for using at college, art school or in art society environments and also for examinations, painting outdoors or on holiday.
