Oil Painting

Oil painting is done with coloring pigments that are bounced with a medium of drying oil particularly in early modern Europe, linseed oil. 

Regularly linseed oil was boiled with a resin such as pine resin or even frankincense was popularly called as 'varnishes' and was valued for their body and gloss. 

The occasionally used oils include poppy-seed oil, walnut oil, and safflower oil.

These oils provide a variety of properties to the oil paint, such as less yellowing or different freshening times.

The gloss of the paints varies depending on the oil. 

Painters frequently use different kinds of oils in the same painting depending on specific colors and effects desired. 

The paints itself provides a particular stability depending on the medium. 

The oil painting did not achieve popularity when it was initially used for the Buddhist Paintings by Indian and Chinese painters in western Afghanistan a short time between the fifth and ninth centuries.

In recent years, water soluble oil paint has come to importance, to some extent restoring the procedure of traditional oils.

Water soluble paints enclose an emulsifier which permits them to be thinned with water. It also allows very fast drying times (1-3 days) when compared with traditional oils (1-3 weeks).
