Join me for a fun day making your own oil paints. Choose, create and mix your own paints using the same techniques as the old masters. Making oil paints by hand is an excellent opportunity to learn about the behaviour and character of each pigment while mixing the colours you want to work with.
Commercial tube paints usually contain not only pigment and oil, but also many kinds of additives. We only use pure pigment and oil.
There are pigments that are not readily available in off-the-shelf tubes. If you only use commercial tube paints, you will never experience the individuality that can be achieved by mixing your own.
All materials provided. You will wrap your paints in individual cling film pouches. These can then be placed into a plastic food container for easy transportation.
