- – Refined Poppy Seed Oil reduces the consistency of oil paints while increasing gloss and transparency.

- – Ideal for working wet-on-wet.
- – Because of its slow-drying properties, it is not advisable to use this oil when underpainting.
Poppyseed oil is used particularly with whites and light blues for its non-yellowing nature as a medium. It is a slower drying oil with a paint film not quite as strong as Linseed and Safflower oils. It was used from the 15th century onwards and originated in the low countries of Europe. Available in 3 sizes: 100ml, 250ml and 1 litre.
