Holbein Painting Oil for Oil Color

Holbein Painting Oils were created to play a complementary role in oil painting by enhancing specific qualities of oil paints. Characterized by Holbein as “dissolving oils,” these painting oils can be used with any professional oil colors.

Spike Lavender Oil — Distilled from a variety of the lavender plant family, this fragrant oil is a thinning agent with properties similar to turpentine but has a greater tendency to oxidize or gum and does not evaporate as readily.

Sun-Thickened Linseed Oil — Still made by the orthodox method of exposure to the sun for prolonged periods, this oil is very heavy and thick, with a viscosity that improves drying, leveling and protective characteristics. Used with oil mediums, varnishes and glazes, it may be diluted with turpentine or petroleum oils.
