Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyds

Griffin is a genuine oil color, made with pigments and oil modified alkyd resin, and it can be thinned with traditional oil color solvents. Alkyds' main advantage over oil paints is that they are dry to the touch in 18 to 24 hours and can usually be varnished in 30 days. All colors remain workable for 4-8 hours, and dry at the same rate to a uniform semi-gloss finish.

As with traditional oils, the drying time is affected by the thickness of the paint and the temperature of the environment. Griffin is classed as artists' quality because the grinding of pigments and quality of raw materials equals that of Winsor's Artists' Oil Color. There is no compromise on lightfastness, color strength, and selection.

The speed of drying allows techniques such as impasto and glazing to be done in considerably less time. It also means that oil painting outdoors, on vacations, or during exams is now a realistic proposition.

Griffin Alkyds are made with an alkyd resin binder that has been modified with a non-yellowing drying oil for optimum color retention, excellent durability, and rapid drying time. Alkyds work because the binder includes a solvent that controls drying time and consistency, giving you a paint that dries quicker than oil but slower than acrylic. Use with Liquin and other traditional oil painting mediums. Clean with mineral spirits.

Basic Set of 6 Colors — This set contains 6 colors in 37 ml (1.25 oz) tubes, including one each of Winsor Red, Winsor Yellow, Indian Red, French Ultramarine, Phthalo Green, and Titanium White.

Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Griffin Alkyd colors can be mixed with traditional oils, but many painters like to use them for underpainting. It's a good application of the principle of fat over lean.

Because alkyd film is slightly less flexible and is faster drying than traditional oil color, application over oil or oilbar layers is not recommended. Alkyd is not intermixible with acrylics.
