    Archival Mediums By Chroma

    Art Spectrum Oil Painting Medium No1

    p_paintoil_medas.jpg
    p_paintoil_medas.jpg

    Art Spectrum Oil Painting Medium No1

    The leanest of the three painting mediums.
    It enables you to get thin colour washes without destroying the paint binder.
    Often an excessive amount of gum turpentine is used as a substitute for a ‘lean’ medium.
    Too much gum turpentine ‘denatures’ the oil paint in the lean layers.
    This leaves an underbound pigment when the paint dries which can be easily brushed off. Medium No. 1
    – contains the minimum formulated account of Stand Oil to cross-link the medium and the oil paint, preventing the breakdown of the vehicle and ensuring permanency.
    – The use of this Medium No. 1 saves time as no prior mixing is required.
    – It can be used to obtain even watercolour effects.
    – Two thin coats of oil paint will give a better coverage than one thick layer and will provide a better surface for future work.
    – A very important advantage of using Medium No. 1 is that it dries over night.

    – More than the recommended amount could effect the quality and permanency of the paint. Another recommended use of Medium No. 1 is as a ‘sealer’ or cushion over acrylic primed canvas.
    – Simply coat the acrylic gesso with the medium prior to use and allow it to dry, or work on it wet.

    Art Spectrum Oil Painting Medium No2

    Medium No. 2 is a fat medium.
    It contains more oil than Medium No. 1.
    It should be mixed with the oil paint as the layers of painting develop.
    It has some of the properties of a glazing medium but it is preferable to use Art Spectrum 24-hour Glazing Medium if very thin veils of colour are desired.

    Art Spectrum Reduced Odour Fat Medium

    Art Spectrum Reduced Odour Fat Medium

    Art Spectrum Reduced Odour Fat Medium

    Use in conjunction with Lean Medium in the ‘fat over lean’ sequence.

    Lean and fat mediums can be intermixed.

    When one layer of oil paint contains an equal amount of oil as the next layer, the top layer will dry while the bottom layer will be deprived of oxygen and remain wet.

    This will cause wrinkling and eventually cracking.

    To prevent this problem, use lean first and fat for subsequent layers.

    This will give an even tension throughout the painting.

    This method is known as ‘lean to fat’.
