What is artist's oil paint?

Oil paint is made from a dry pigment powder mixed with a drying oil. The pigment is derived from either organic plant material, ground up minerals, metal oxides, or synthetically manufactured compounds. Often Linseed oil is used, however, Safflower oil is used for very light toned pigments such as White. This is because Linseed oil has a tendency to turn slightly yellow after a long period of time. Some manufacturers of tube oil paints may include their own recipe of additives to the pigment and oil combination, such as, whiting (powdered chalk) as a cheap filler to bulk out the paint, extenders and wax. The quality and properties of the paint can vary from one manufacturer to another.

The oil paint can be diluted by adding a little more oil, or a solvent such as Turpentine or Odourless Mineral Spirits (OMS). The rheology of the paint (i.e. its mechanical properties) are often altered by the artist by using a medium that is added to the oil paint. This can change the stiffness, opacity, drying time and final luster of the paint. There are many recipes for painting mediums, which may include any of the following; oil, solvent, resin, whiting (powdered chalk), marble dust, wax, or a drying agent known as a siccative.
