Other Oil Paint Mediums

Mediums, oils and varnishes for altering the handling characteristics of your oil colours. Traditionally Turpentine and Linseed Oil have been added to thin the oil paint, moving progressively from the 'lean' layers (more turpentine) to the 'fat' layers (more linseed oil).

Liquin is a very popular soy oil based alkyd medium. It speeds up the drying time somewhat and creates a very stable paint layer which can become shiny - but this can be resolved with a varnish when your painting is finished and fully dry.
