Archival Oils - 40ml Tubes
Archival Oils are produced from the finest colour pigments, chosen for their purity, brilliance and performance.
Archival Oils are superior to traditional oils because they have the ability to flex, which prevents the build-up of tension between the layers of paint and the substrate.
Archival Oils, together with a number of the leading traditional artist's oil paints, were tested by the independent Australian Government Analytical Testing Laboratories.
Archival Oils remain uncracked and flexible after five years of repeated stress testing.
Archival are so unique that its formulation is patented. It is the only flexible oil paint in the world and offers unsurpassed freedom of technique, fast drying time, paintings that will not crack with age and a safe working environment
The permanence of the Binder is as important as the permanence of the pigments used in artists' paints.
When combined with alkyd based mediums, Archival dries quickly on the painting, but it will remain workable on the palette until mediums are added.
Paintings done with Archival Oils do not become brittle as they age, because the oil binder has been modified, using a patented process developed by Chroma.
