Art Spectrum 500ml - Oil Paint Prime

Art Spectrum Oil Prime is comprised of a complex formula containing Pure Linseed Oil and resin blend combined with Titanium Dioxide. This allows for oil paint colours to crosslink for natural adhesion to the painting surface.

This versatile primer offers excellent opacity, tooth and flow while protecting against bacteria and fungicides. Quick drying, lead-free and archival it is suitable for canvas, wood panel, masonite and masonry.

Apply as you would an acrylic gesso and thin with water as required.

Art Spectrum Oil Primer can be painted over as soon as the moisture has evaporated, usually the next day.

Handy hints:

  • No glue or clear acrylic sizing is required

  • Shake or stir well

  • Use undiluted or thin with up to 15% water to assist with application of first coat. Final coat should always be undiluted. Two coats are recommended

  • Apply with a brush, roller or sponge directly onto canvas or wooden panels.  Oil Prime is ideally suited for priming wooden panels because of its excellent linseed oil penetration into the timber substrate

  • Oil Prime has a short drying/curing time formulated to be touch-dry in one hour and a second coat may be applied within the same day. Oil painting can begin the following day, or as soon as the water has evaporated from the priming system.
