Walnut oil is naturally less yellow and dries slower than Linseed oil. Leonardo Da Vinci recommended Walnut oil, and from the Renaissance onward it was used for whites and light colors.
Cold-pressed oils are obtained by pressing and grinding seeds in a stone or metal press. This historical extraction technique yields less oil than using heat or chemical methods, traditionally it was preferred in order to have a purer oil.
CCS Walnut Oil Pale Cold-Pressed™ is extracted using the more costly, time-tested method of cold-pressing oils. This method follows historic precedent by using the most natural oil and extraction processes. CCS does not use high-heat extracted oils.
High-heat and chemically extracted oils have many more impurities than cold-pressed oils, and may alter the oil’s natural properties.
Raw cold-pressed oils have a dark yellow-orange color that can affect paint color. Most art material companies either sell the uncleaned raw cold-pressed oil, or use harsh chemical cleaning and bleaching processes to make the oils lighter in color.
CCS Walnut Oil Pale Cold-Pressed™ is washed and cleaned using natural processes documented since the Renaissance.
