Williamsburg Handmade Oils are crafted by skilled Americans artisans, using top-quality pigments from around the world. They are carefully ground to enhance the beauty and luminosity specific to each pigment, and then combined with pure, premium, alkali-refined and pH-balanced linseed oil. Every color in the line possesses a unique consistency and texture — some are slightly gritty, and some are extremely smooth.
