Mediums for oil painting

WINSOR & NEWTON / Artisan series

Oil Painting Mediums
Oil Painting Mediums are made to dilute oil colours. This improves the flowability and wetting of the colours, dries slowly to a flexible film, which addresses sunken, matte paint locations. 

 

Linseed oil 
Mixable linseed oil, which reduces the consistency, improves flow ability, increases the gloss and transparency of Artisan oil colours. 

 

Slow Drying stand oil 
A pale viscous oil, which delays the drying and imparts a hard, smooth enamel finish without brush strokes. The state oil improves fluidity and the oil colours. it smooths brushwork lends itself brilliantly to glazes and highlighting details. 

 

Quick-drying paint products 
This painting medium improves fluidity and encourages drying. Brushstrokes ironed, the transparency is increased. Particularly suitable for glazes, highlighting details, protection against yellowing.

GESSO

Prime your surfaces and add tooth, ready for paint application. Create the perfect absorbency, texture and archival ground. When you use acrylic gesso, the only thing you really need to care about is to make sure that you cover the entire surface of the canvas evenly.

Gesso was originally a primer based on plaster and animal glue, which was used in the Italian medieval painting. Today the term for any primer for wood or canvas for later paint.
