Oil Painting Mediums, Dilutants and Varnishes

This is a general term applied to liquids or gels that are used to mix and protect oil paints. Turpentine (thinners): - Used to thin down paint and this or white spirit is used to clean up . Low Odour Thinners Sansadour is a substitute for those who are allergic to or dislike the smell of turpentine. Linseed oil: - mix with oil colours, with or without thinners to reduce the consistency, retards drying. Alkyd Medium: - an additive to increase the transparency and minimise brush marks, also reduces drying time. Gel Medium and Alkyd White: - both of these are alkyd formulae, which reduce drying times and have minimal effect on viscosity. The Gel medium produces durable glazes and Alkyd White makes tints that dry faster when compared with tints using Oil Colour Whites.
