Art Spectrum Oil Painting Medium No1

Art Spectrum Oil Painting Medium No1

$26.02$42.13

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.
