OIL COLOR made with walnut oil has been preferred by artists for centuries.  It provides rich, vibrant color that is naturally more alive and brilliant. Free flowing and slower drying, our oil color enables delicate passages of finely blended color that will retain its brilliance over time.

Why Walnut Oil

We chose to build our oil color with this oil because its unique refractive index and non-yellowing nature produces color that is more naturally alive and brilliant. In addition walnut oil allows us to increase the amount of pigment in each color, resulting in extraordinary richness, color saturation, brilliance and tinting strength.

Solvent Free

Our commitment to the artist extends to their environment. At M. Graham, we have freed ourselves from solvents in our work environment.  You can free your studio of dangerous solvents as well. Using walnut oil to clean brushes is a natural way to remove color without creating a solvent hazard.
