Traditionally produced in three roll mills, LUKAS Studio Oil is a modern premium quality, yet economical oil paint, containing without exception, brilliantly coloured and technically safe pigments with excellent lightfastness. The binders are, as in all LUKAS oil paint assortments, exclusively pure, vegetable linseed and sunflower oils in special quality. Sunflower oil is used in the manufacture of pale shades to greatly reduce the traditional «yellowing» that occurs when made with linseed oil. Moreover, a good and even drying of the colours is guaranteed and the risk of cracking of the surface while the colours are drying is minimised, when used properly. The production of these colours is finalised through the traditional three roll mills.
Brushes are important tools for the artist, they influence the artist’s technique and a good quality brush is of great importance. A bristle brush should be used when painting with a thick colour application. This results in clearly visible brush strokes. Very interesting tools for works with Lukas Studio oil colour are also palette knives with which the colour can be applied “Impasto” and in thick layers (e.g., with the additional use of painting butter). They are available in various forms and sizes and allow accurate modelling of structures. Lukas Studio oil colour can be used on various painting surfaces.
