Graduate Oil Colours are traditionally crafted with a soft buttery consistency and high pigment loading. They offer excellent brush ability and are easy to mix while being suitable for smooth brush applications and impasto. All colours are either Permanent 4**** or Normally Permanent 3*** and surface dry to a uniform low gloss satin sheen within four to five days.
Available in a range of forty-two vibrant colours many of which are single pigment which ensures that colours are brighter and cleaner when mixed. The unique formulation of refined linseed oil and modern drying agents creates oil colours which are easy to squeeze from the tube and effortlessly mixed on the palette.
The Graduate Oil Colour range has a well balanced choice of opaque and transparent colours. This is ideal for oil painters who like to experiment with the layering techniques of transparent oil colours or to create bold and expressive opaque techniques with colours such as Coeruleum, Rose Madder, Phthalo Blue or Viridian Hue. Alternatively, high lustre metallics Silver, Gold, Rich Gold or Copper mix beautifully with transparent colours.
