Natural Pigments Sun-Thickened Walnut Oil 8oz

Price: $43.00 CAD
Rublev Colours Sun-Thickened Walnut Oil is made by exposing filtered, cold-pressed walnut oil to sunlight in shallow tanks covered with clear glass and exposed to the atmosphere for a period of three months. No driers or other additives are used in the making of this oil. The exposure to sunlight thickens it. This walnut oil is naturally bleached to almost water white, so it can be used with palest colors and whites. This oil can be used as a medium or added to homemade mediums.

Use turpentine or mineral spirits as a solvent or diluent for oil painting mediums made with walnut oil. Our walnut oil is a drying oil derived from California walnuts.

As early as the fifth century walnut oil was recommended by Aetius for varnishing wax pictures and gilt surfaces. It is recommended for all light pigments in the treatises on painting by Leonardo da Vinci, Vasari, Borghini, Lornazzo, Armenini, Bisagno, Volpato, and others.
