Art Made From Nuts

Organic Walnuts
"Commercial Artist Oil Paint This page was inspired by Michael Morgan who is passionate about the use of walnut oil as an artist who is involved in making his own oil paint, as well as one studying the use of walnut oil in commercial artist oil paint."

Paint Remover
M Graham Products
"Free your studio of dangerous solvents by using walnut oil in place of turpentine or odorless mineral spirits when cleaning brushes. Walnut oil removes color from the artist’s brush or tool as effectively as odorless paint thinners, without creating a solvent hazard. Walnut oil is a natural vegetable oil that neither evaporates nor removes essential oils. The addition of walnut oil to color will increase flow and slow the drying."

"Made from crushed pecan resin."

Art decor made from macadamia nuts
"Made With Australian Macadamia nut shell. An innovative material, Husque brings together the iconic Australian macadamia nut, the principles of recycling, and the ingenuity of Australian design."

Cremnitz White in Walnut Oil
"The use of walnut oil in paint can be traced back even further than that of linseed. When 15th century artists began to add oil to their tempera colours it was walnut oil that seemed the obvious choice. Jan van Eyck in Flanders and Antonello da Messina in Italy both knew of its handling properties; from that time on it was widely used by just about all the great artists, being more a question of who did not use it rather than who did."

Aw, nuts! Artist turns peanut shells into detailed celebrity caricatures
"Steve Casino found a peanut, found a peanut. Then he cracked it open (gently). But he didn't eat it. Instead, the 46-year-old toy inventor decided to paint a face on the peanut shell ... and thus a hobby, and a lucrative second profession, were born."

Man wades across peanut butter art exhibit
"A DUTCH museum-goer got into a sticky situation when he waded into a carpet of creamy peanut butter not realising it was a modern art installation.

The hapless visitor somehow failed to spot the 14m expanse of edible goo at the Boijmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam, the second largest city in the Netherlands, Algemeen Dagblad reported overnight."
