“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
~Henry Ward Beecher
Oil paint is a type of slow-drying paint that consists of particles of pigment suspended in a drying oil, commonly linseed oil. The viscosity of the paint may be modified by the addition of a solvent such as turpentine or white spirit, and varnish may be added to increase the glossiness of the dried oil paint film. Its hard-wearing properties and luminous colors make it desirable. .
Due to its slow-drying properties, it has recently been used in paint-on-glass animation. Thickness of coat has considerable bearing on time required for drying: thin coats of oil paint dry relatively quickly. ~Wikipedia
