Read more about OilRead more about oil
Oil paint is a paint whose binder or carrier is a drying oil that completely envelops the pigment particles.

The oils used as binders and commonly used are linseed, poppy seed, walnut or safflower oil. These choices give the paint a range of properties, such as drying and yellowing time.

Depending on the oil, some differences are also visible in the brightness of the paints. A painter can use different oils in the same painting depending on the pigments and surface effects desired, the desired texture more or less liquid or pasty, or obtain a varnish appreciated for its body and brilliance.
