Oil paint has been regarded as a fine art medium for hundreds of years, and for good reason. It differs to Acrylic paint in that it has a much slower drying time than acrylics, allowing you to manipulate the paint over several painting sessions, and also allows subtle colour blending, layering and various brush techniques. Oil Paint also dries to a consistent colour, whereas acrylics may darken slightly upon drying, and offers long term durability and resistance to the elements.
