reduces the oils’ tendency to yellow.

Linseed oil is the most widely used oil because when dry it forms the toughest, most resilient paint films.

Used even in small quantities, adds a soft, slippery quality when added to oil colours. The paint film will stay open and is easily moved or reworked for up to 24 hours.

It is recommended that the use of linseed oil, whether cold pressed or refined, should be kept to a minimum as a medium to aid fluidity or transparency. If multiple layers of linseed oil are introduced, in the mediums added to oil colours, so the effects of future yellowing will be exaggerated.

Use sparingly, and if wishing to employ a traditional glaze technique Langridge recommends the use of Stand Oil, a virtually non-yellowing oil, as the basis for painting mediums.

Langridge Refined Linseed Oil should be considered a ‘fat’ medium. It should not to be used for underpainting if oil colours with no additional medium are to be applied on top.
