Artist quality Safflower oil (high linoleic) in a 16oz light-blocking amber glass bottle. Can be used either for adding to oil paints or for cleaning your brushes (to avoid toxic and harsh solvents). It is also used with our Paintbrush Preservers.
Solvents dry out and physically wear on paintbrushes. Unlike non-drying grocery store safflower oil, our safflower oil is good for artist/paint use. Our oil is even edible! Safflower oil will even soften brushes with partially dried-in oil and acrylic paint if left soaking for a full day or two.
Oils offer the ability to effectively surround the particles of pigment and move them out of the bristles. It’s healthy for the bristles and it’s safe for you and the environment. The Windsor & Newton® website even demonstrates this brush-friendly solution in their “How to care for your brushes Masterclass”.
