Established in 1887 in Paris, Sennelier has been producing high quality oil colour for generations.Only the finest pigments are used.
They are ground very slowly with extreme care to an extra-fine consistency. Then they are combined at maximum concentration with an archival safflower oil to yield the highest possible tinting strength and a lustrous satin finish, which dries in a uniform manner over the entire range. Unlike linseed, safflower oil is non-yellowing.
Dense, yet buttery Sennelier oils are more highly pigmented and firmer than ever. The reformulated homogeneous consistency is better suited to the diversity of modern techniques. The slightly heavier body retains its unique creaminess, while offering greater versatility. Sennelier’s classic palette is expanding with 50 new, original shades that encompass contemporary trends and tastes.
