Developed in the early 1900s, Winsor & Newton’s oil color, Winsor Emerald is a versatile green and a valuable addition to any paint collection. Winsor & Newton’s exacting production process, from the milling of the color to the final packaging is carefully performed to abide by federal regulations and to live up to the trusted name. Slow drying Winsor Emerald is a transparent color that stands true through time, unchanging. It is a very strong color, perfect to be used as a base with a variety of greens, but it also performs well on its own and blended with tints. Its texture allows versatility in styles, adapting as well to a heavier look with strong palette strokes as it adapts to a smooth gloss finish when thinned.
