• Art Spectrum Painting Medium No.1

Art Spectrum Painting Medium No.1

The leanest medium. Ready to use straight from the container. Dries overnight, depending on climate and thickness of paint application. 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 these lean layers. This leaves an underbound pigment when the paint dries which weakens the bond between the oil paint and the canvas.

Art Spectrum Painting Medium No. 1 contains a balanced  amount of Stand Oil and turpentine for a well-balanced, permanent paint layer. Also useful to clean and lessen absorbency of pre-primed canvas panels and stretched canvas’. (Wipe on and wipe off).

Features:

  • A permanent artists’ painting medium.
  • Easy to apply. Simply place a small amount in a container and dip in your brush when required.
  • Rapid drying. It can dry (harden) overnight.
  • Allows colour brilliance. Using this medium allows white ground to glow through.
