How to Prepare Oil Paint
Technique for preparing oil paints based on pigments and distilled linseed oil.

Distilled linseed oil


Pour small amount of the pigment onto a flat, non-porous work surface.

Make a small hole in the mound of pigment.

Carefully pour drops of linseed oil into the crater. (About 1 T to 40 gr. of pigment.)

With a good palette knife, blend the pigment into the oil.

When the oil and pigment have been completely combined into a smooth mixture, use the paint right away.
