  • Oil Painting

    Oil paint can be really exciting to work with in its capability for producing a brilliantly vibrant and textured look. Oil paint can give artwork a "3-D" quality, which can really bring your work to life. 

    Something very important to remember about painting with oils is its required drying time. Because oil paint is thicker, and because artists often use more of it on one canvas in order to enhance that 3-D quality, it needs ample drying time - which requires patience! 

    The supplies needed to start your oil painting project are displayed below:

    1. The Royal & Langnickel Oil Paint Set is a great selection. Use a painting knife instead of a brush for more texture.
