Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour 37ml Winsor Emerald
Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour Winsor Emerald is a bright clean opaque emerald color that is mixed with linseed/safflower oil and is a permanent color with excellent lightfastness. First documented in 1822, it was originally a deadly color containing arsenic. It is said to have killed Napoleon as his wallpaper in St Helens was emerald green. Winsor & Newton have since created a non-toxic version closely matching the original color.
Every tube of Artists' Oil Paint contains a calculated ratio of oil and pigment based on the quantity of oil in the tube. This varies from color to color because, just as some pigments need to be ground finer than others, they also need more, or less, oil to provide optimal performance.
Pigment Color Code: PG36 / PW5
