Oil paints are a miniature painter's secret weapon! From effortless pinwashing of details, quick and satisfying shading and the smoothest blends in the painting world, we recommend everyone to try them out! Winsor & Newton Artist Grade oil paints are the perfect combination of finely milled pigments and quality oils. We recommend using synthetic brushes, odorless white spirit to clean brushes and paint that got where it shouldn't, and linseed oil to dilute the paints.
