it sure is.
you can find a paraffin penguin at the local zoo.
its sweat is used for oil paints.
very useful if you ask me...
b. the use of oil paints to create highly realistic details d. a focus on daily life e. an emphasis on the creation of realistic scenes
George Grosz generally drew his work but then later on in his life he went back and added to some of them with oil paints.
Paraffin-a flammable, translucent, waxy solid consisting of a mixture of saturated hydrocarbons, obtained by distillation from petroleum or shale and used in candles, cosmetics, polishes, and sealing and waterproofing compounds.
Alice paints them Bloody red.

Paints use either some type of oil or plain water as their solvent. Paints using water don't produce the air pollution that paints using oil do.
Unfortunately combining oil and water in paint always results in disaster. Oil based paints must be thinned with solvent. Brushes used to paint oil based paints also need to be cleaned with solvent.
Varsol, oil thinner, turps, lacquer thinner, xylene, and many others.
Paraffin solvent is made to dissolve paraffin in tubing or in surface equipment. It is usually made of aromatic and aliphatic liquid organic materials.
Oil and latex paints are tinted with the same universal tints. There are specific tints that only work in solvent based paints however.
Oil-based paints tend to separate into layers over time. The pigment molecules are suspended in a solvent of linseed oil and mineral spirits. Oil-based paints are suspensions. Water-based paints such as latex paint are colloids.
Regardless of the color, oil-based paints use solvent, normally mineral spirits, as a solvent Vs. water for water-based and oil-based paints dry harder than latex paints making them more scrubable. Water-based paints don't yellow or crack as they age and can be formulated to dry fairly hard while still retaining some elasticity. Both oil and water-based white paints should cover to opacity in a single coat.
this is true because the oils attack the fumes in oil paints
Paraffin, solvent, dye.
Paraffin oil is a derivative of petroleum. In solid forms, paraffin oil is a solid with 20-40 atom molecules. Petroleum is not a solid.
Paraffin oil is a gas at 450 oC.
Most paints dry by the action of air vapourising their solvent.
