Refined Safflower Oil


Safflower oil is similar in properties to poppy oil. However, it forms a more flexible paint film than poppy oil and so is more suited to painting on flexible supports like stretched canvas. It is also well suited as a glazing oil. Safflower Oil is popular for grinding whites and light coloured pigments. Safflower Oil is brighter and paler than linseed oil.
