Williamsburg Oils Adds Seven New Colors & Customer Sampling Opportunity

New Products

Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors adds seven new colors to its product line!  Now with close to 180 colors to choose from, Williamsburg Handmade Oils has one of the most extensive lines of professional grade, quality oil paints worldwide.  New colors being introduced include Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide, Transparent Red Iron Oxide, Pyrrole Red, Pyrrole Orange, Nickel Azo Yellow, Bismuth Vanadate Yellow and Titan Buff.  With this launch, dealers will also have samples (limited supply) of Pyrrole Red, Pyrrole Orange and Bismuth Vanadate Yellow available for customers to try out!

Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide is a silky smooth alternative to Stil de Grain and has a warm, surprisingly deep walnut color.  It is a cleaner, brighter yellow oxide and glazes and tints to earthy, luminous yellows, or polished brass.

Transparent Red Iron Oxide is milled velvety smooth and mixes beautifully with Ultramarine Blue for neutrals to flesh tones.  It is brighter and cleaner than natural iron oxides.

Pyrrole Red, a classic ruby or cherry red, is similar to Cadmium Red Medium, but cleaner and more saturated in tints and blends.  It is more opaque and lightfast than Naphthol-based permanent reds.

Pyrrole Orange is a very lightfast and vivid orange that falls between Cadmium Orange and Cadmium Red Light, but contains no heavy metals.

Nickel Azo Yellow, a unique mustard colors surprises artists with stunning gold undertones and bright primrose yellow tints.  It is cooler than other transparent yellows.

Bismuth Vanadate Yellow is the absolute brightest cool yellow, making other yellows seem dull!  It expands range and reach in greens and other mixtures and is similar in opacity to Cadmiums with excellent lightfastness.

Titan Buff, the last of the new colors for 2018, is an extremely subtle, warm pinkish off-white porcelain color.  It is perfect to use on its own or for mixing light mass and highlights as they appear in warm light.

If interested in learning more about the new colors, the most recent issue of our Just Paint Newsletter (#35), published late February, includes an article, “Williamsburg Welcomes 7 New Colors,” written by Material & Applications Specialist, Greg Watson.  In this article he gives a detailed overview of each of the new colors and their unique attributes to the Williamsburg product offering.  All Just Paint articles are also available online at www.justpaint.org.

Availability of samples will vary, depending on retail store, so be sure to ask your local retailer beginning late February, early March!  To learn more specific details about Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors, visit the website at www.WilliamsburgOils.com.
