Oil paint is simple. At its most basic, it’s just a mixture of oil and pigment. But depending on the color and quality, a liter of this paint could cost you $285 to $1,100.

While the rise of oil paint is associated with the Renaissance, paintings using poppy-seed oil have been dated as far back as seventh-century Afghanistan. So what is it that makes this paint so special? And why is it so expensive?

Well, of course oil's still a favorite, even with acrylics being created. It's easier to blend and takes more time to dry.

IM HERE TO WARN MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS BEFORE THE END COMES Jesus is coming soon no time left call upon the Lord now ask him to forgive you of all your sins. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved Say Father in Heaven, I believe that Jesus died for my sins And God will impart eternal life to your spirit.
