“The first quality oil paint, EXCELLENT!” DAVID HOCKNEY 1998.
“These are the best oil paints in the world today” HOWARD HODGKIN 1996.
Artist’s Oil Paint with the original colour intensity that artists would have experienced prior to mass production. Michael Harding paints have grown from a range of 15 colours in 1993 to a present day 64, and are now used by many leading artists. The greatest care has been taken in selecting all the ingredients to produce colours of power and intensity. All colours are ground in a grade of Refined Cold Pressed Linseed Oil chosen for its neutral acidity. There is one exception to this; titanium white no. 1. This is ground in Refined Poppy Oil which therefore is slower drying as driers are not included within the formulation of this range. As well as using traditional pigments this range of paints also makes use of more recent technological breakthroughs in pigment production to produce a fine range of lake colours with very high lightfastness ratings. 225ml – Selected colours in stock. All colours available to order.
Because of health and safety regulations Lead White paint can no longer be packaged in tubes. Michael Harding is still producing Cremnitz White but it will be supplied in a 250ml cartridge. FOR RESTORATION PURPOSES ONLY
