When oil painting started as a medium for mass production, it was an extremely labor-intensive process.
To paint, you had to create a series of oil paints.
The process required a large amount of labor, which in turn required a lot of oil.
This meant the oil paint could only be produced by small groups of people.
Today, oil painting is used as a form of mass-produced art, with large corporations such as Hanes and Saksa using oil paint as part of their products.
Oil painting has also become a popular medium for the production of fine art, which has been the basis of art museums around the world.
