Product description

Details
Our safflower oil is expeller-pressed from safflower oilseeds (Carthamus tinctorius) cultivated in North America, and lightly refined. It is a clear, pale yellow oil that is odorless. As it yellows less than linseed oil it is good for making pale oil colors. Safflower oil dries faster than poppy seed oil and gives oil color paste better texture.

Most artists' color manufacturers today substitute poppy seed oil or safflower oil for linseed oil in preparing certain pale oil colors and whites. Poppy seed, sunflower and safflower oil can be safely used to make oil colors, such as light or pale colors, but they are not recommended for use as a painting media and should not be expected to replace linseed oil. These drying oils have little or no linolenic acid, a binder that gives a yellow tint to oil paint. The only binder in these oils is linoleic acid, which is not only less yellow, but also yellows less over time. However, some consider that linoleic acid by itself is a weaker binder and should not be used as a replacement for linseed oil in all cases.

Safflower oil was introduced into painting in the mid-twentieth century and was unknown to earlier artists.
