Faster drying time than traditional oil colour

Following the popularity of acrylic colours, which dry in 10-20 minutes, oil painters began requesting a product which dried faster than traditional oils. Winsor & Newton responded in 1976 by developing a range of alkyd colours, which has today become Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colour. Alkyds are made from a naturally derived vegetable oil that is polymerized. The result is a resin-like product that, when mixed with a solvent, is very similar to traditional linseed oil. The colours remain workable for 4 to 8 hours and are touch dry in 18 to 24. Consistent drying times across the range removes the usual restrictions that come with conventional oils, making it easier to overpaint, regardless of the colour upon the surface.


A thick, pigmented paint that can be used for many different artistic techniques, this smooth oil colour can be used straight from the tube or thinned using conventional oil colour solvents. With a greater level of transparency, it allows for increased depth and clarity when glazing whilst its fluid consistency ensures it dries with a more reflective surface. The paint will remain usable for four to eight hours and become dry to touch after 24 hours. The drying may be affected by the thickness of the paint, though artwork will still dry noticeably quicker than traditional oil paints meaning impasto and glazing techniques can be done in a single session.
