Dala Oil Paints can be used straight from the tube and come in a variety of pre-mixed, classic colours which themselves allow for further successful colour mixing.
Use in conjunction with Dala Artists’ Oil Mediums which are paint additives offering a host of alterations to the paints consistency; gloss; transparency, flow and texture upon the canvas.
Many of the must-have tools and accessories suited to working in oils are available at Dala – including palette knives; brushes; oil painting mediums and easels.
Helpful Tip: The golden rule when using different kinds of media on the same substrate is “lean to fat”. This means that colour mediums like watercolour and acrylic colour can be applied to the canvas first and oil colour may be applied onto that. However, it is not advised to apply the oil colour (fat) first and then acrylic or watercolour (lean).
*Clean brushes / palette knives with Artists’ Turpentine or Artists’ White Spirit to remove oil colour residue. Therafter wash brushes in warm, soapy water and leave to dry.
