Instructions for making Oil Colours
at Home
You need: a mixing plate with a rough surface, a glass pestle/mul-
ler, a palette knife, pigments, and a binder. To begin, we recom-
mend that you try mixing an oil colour: whites should be prepared
with a bleached sunflower oil (Art.No. 2222), and colours with
linseed oil (Art.No. 2212/2213). Place a small amount of pigment
on the mixing plate. Add sufficient oil to produce a stiff paste
when rubbed with the palette knife. The paste is then rubbed with
the glass muller using a uniform, a back and forth circular motion
with slight pressure applied.
With each motion the paste will become thinner. Each individual
pigment needs a specific quantity of binder. Therefore a general
rule on how much binder you will need is not possible. Just grind
and add binder slowly until you reach a “buttery consistency’’.
To reduce the drying time, some cobalt siccative (Art.No. 2229 /
max. 1%) could be added to the paste mixture, or add linseed oil
varnish (Art.No. 2215) instead of linseed oil because this already
contains siccative.
All pigments available in 100 ml jars with screwtop.
