By traditional methods, we painstakingly handcraft Artistic Lineage Oil Colors to archival standards, providing the finest quality available on the market. We have created a superior line of intensely pigmented, professional oil colors using water-washed, virgin, cold-pressed linseed oil as the vehicle. It naturally wets and suspends the pigments, forgoing the need for chemical additives such as wetting and dispersing agents like metal soaps (aluminum stearate). Artistic Lineage is archival-quality with an array of completely lightfast pigments. All our products are handmade to last the test of time!
