Oil paintings generally employ drying oils with which pigments are mixed. Safflower oil, walnut oil and poppy seed oil are some examples.

Nowadays premixed colours are found in the market but previously the artists used to mix the pigments with oils. In recent times synthetic colours are more in fashion but in olden days pigments from natural substances were mostly used.

Oil painting is a process of painting with pigment. Drying oils are commonly used for oil painting such as walnut oil, seed oil etc. Oil paint is usually mixed with linseed oil artist grade mineral spirits or other solvents to create a thinner faster or slower drying paint. For oil painting, synthetic brushes are used because they are very durable and cost efficient.
