Michael Harding Artist Materials

Oil Paints

The Michael Harding Oil Paint range contains the finest of the finest pigments, ground in refined cold-pressed linseed oil. Luminous, brilliant colours at very high tint strengths, they are totally free of fillers, extenders or driers, with a texture that’s silky rather than oily.

MH Non-Absorbent Acrylic Primer (NAAP)

Non-Absorbent Acrylic Primer

After talking to artists and listening to their needs, I have specifically formulated my primer to be non-absorbent. This means artists will no longer be frustrated by the dullness of paint which has had the oil drawn out resulting in a flat, muted looking paint surfaces. 


To complement my oil paints I also produce oil paint mediums. I have six different mediums available that include: our Stand Oil medium, a Dammar Glaze, an Oil Wax-Resin, Beeswax Paste, an Oleo-Resin, and Balsam Resin.

Refined Oils and Turpentine

I also have a variety of highly refined oils and turpentine made to complement our oil paint line. Linseed, Walnut, Poppyseed, and Safflower oil.

Varnishes and Glazes

To help preserve your paintings after you’ve put the finishing touches on them and let them dry, I have varnishes available for you. My types of varnishes include Dammar and Matt Varnish.

Paint Sets

A vast selection of our colours combined into numerous sets perfect for sampling our line of colours. There are also custom sets made with the colours of choice of professional artists: Quang Ho, Leon Holmes, and Vicki Norman.
