To support its extensive line of Handmade Oil Colors, Williamsburg offers a complementary line of tradition-based mediums and other essential painting tools.
Alkyd Resin — Similar in consistency to a thick stand oil, Williamsburg Alkyd Resin is a slow-drying medium made from pure alkyd resin that dries to a glossy, flexible, enamel-like film. Add it directly into oil paints to modify their transparency and flow. It is also a useful ingredient for making other mediums.
Cold Pressed Linseed Oil — Extracted without heat or chemicals, this genuine cold pressed linseed oil increases the flow, transparency, and gloss of oil paints. It can also be used when grinding your own pigments by hand or as an ingredient in other mediums.
Damar Crystals — Williamsburg Damar Crystals are highest-quality, 100% natural damar crystals from Indonesia.
Extender Medium — This semi-transparent extender is composed of marble dust and barium sulfate in linseed oil. Use it to extend oil colors without altering their consistency. It also moderately speeds drying time. Note: it will increase the tendency of oil colors to yellow.
Linseed Oil — This is a genuine alkali-refined linseed oil. It increases the flow, transparency, and gloss of oil paints and is also useful as an ingredient when making your own painting mediums.
Pure Beeswax Blocks — Made from 100% natural, bleached beeswax, Williamsburg Pure Beeswax Blocks are great for altering the sheen of mediums and varnishes, or as an additive when making oil paint.
Pure Beeswax Pellets — Made from 100% natural, bleached beeswax, Williamsburg Pure Beeswax Pellets are great for altering the sheen of mediums and varnishes, or as an additive when making oil paint.
Stand Oil — This thick, honey-like linseed oil offers excellent leveling properties while increasing flow, transparency, and gloss. Slower drying and less yellowing than other linseed oils, it creates a smooth, durable, flexible film. It is also useful as an ingredient when making your own painting mediums.
Titanium Oil Ground — Containing no zinc or alkyd, Williamsburg Titanium Oil Ground is made with titanium dioxide and marble dust ground in 100% alkali-refined linseed oil. It offers just the right amount of tooth and absorbency.
Wax Medium — Made from damar resin, refined linseed oil, and pure, 100% beeswax (no paraffin or microcrystallines), Williamsburg Wax Medium can be used in moderation to thicken paint and impart a short, buttery texture. It increases transparency and dries to a satin sheen.
