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?

All this doesn't explain why is it that acrylic paint is cheaper. Don't they use the same pigments? Can't they use the same pigments as the acrylic counterparts and make it the same price?

So I was told why it WAS expensive with good reason. But was not explained on why it's still expensive. Everything takes R&D so that doesn't relate to a $100 tube of oil paint.
