Organic Walnut Oil is a non-toxic and preservative free medium for artists who work with earth pigments.
This organic refined walnut oil is slow-drying, non-toxic, and suitable to blend with the mineral oil pigments to make natural oil paint. In contrast to linseed oil, walnut oil doesn't yellow over time. Walnut oil is the most perfect oil to mix your natural pigments. The oil does not yellow your artworks overtime and has a long shelf life. Old masters such as Rembrandt made their paints with walnut oil and throughout the years the colours remain beautiful and the paint lasts for years on all types of surfaces, such as Canvas.
