Using Archival Oils and Mediums

Fast Drying Time

When combined with Archival’s alkyd based mediums Archival Oils dry quickly on paintings, but will remain workable on the palette until mediums are added. The ideal working situation for most oil painters today is to be able to work wet-in-wet during a painting session of 3-6 hours on one day and be able to overpaint the following day. The flexibility and fast drying time of Archival Oils and Mediums make this possible.

Try Fast Drying White to Speed Up Drying Time.

Nearly all paintings contain about as much white paint as every other colour put together and white therefore ‘sets the pace’ for drying times, this was one of the reasons why artists used to like Flake White because it dried faster than Titanium White which takes about 5 days. As well as the fast drying mediums we have introduced a Fast Drying Titanium White which dries in about 2 days and of course faster, if fast mediums are used with it.

Freedom Of Technique Break the Traditional Oil Painting Rules

As an Archival painting cures, the surface layer stretches to accommodate movement below, allowing the artist to go on and complete their work quickly without harming it, even when complex layering techniques are used. The modified polymers used in Archival Oils and its mediums produce a paint film which is highly flexible like an acrylic. It has allowed artists much greater freedom of technique. The classic oil painting rules have become less well known and artists want faster processes to get their work done, Archival provides the answers.
