Gamblin Gamsol Odourless Mineral Spirits

Gamsol is the safest solvent that allows oil painters to utilize all traditional painting techniques without compromise.

Primary Uses for Gamsol:

Thinning oil colours: A little goes a long way; stiff oil colors relax immediately when a little Gamsol is added. Be careful not to thin oil colors too much with solvent alone, this can compromise the ability of the paint to form a paint film.

Modifying painting mediums: Our Galkyd line of painting mediums are formulated with Gamsol, so they readily accept Gamsol as a thinning agent.
Note: Gamsol should not be added to painting mediums made with natural resins (dammar, copal, mastic). They require strong solvents such as turpentine.

Studio clean up: brushes, palettes, palette knives, etc.
