Formulated to thin oil colours and maintain strong flexible paint film with the same viscosity similar to that of a traditional dammar/refined linseed oil/turpentine painting medium. It will leave brush strokes in thick layers and allow a longer working time. Glazes are slightly less glossy using Galkyd Lite.
Is a soft, silky gel that gives body to paint, decrease viscosity and can produce a luminous finish. Free of lead and other toxic materials, Neo Megilp with not cause your paint to yellow or darken.
Refined Linseed Oil:
Refined Linseed Oil is the palest of linseed oils. Use this linseed oil to thin oil colours and increase their brilliance and transparency, increase flow and slow drying times. Use sparingly or mix with an equal amount of Gamsol to create a traditional slow-drying painting medium.
One of the safest solvents available, Gamsol allows you to thin your oil paints and clean up without the harmful odor of traditional solvents. It evaporates 100% leaving no residue in paint layers and a little goes a long way – stiff oil colours relax immediately when a small amount of Gamsol is added.
Solvent Free Gel:
Made from safflower oil and alkyd resin, Gamblin’s Solvent Free Gel gives colours more glass, flow and transparency, yet holds the shape of brushstrokes. This gel when added to oil colours can slightly speed up the drying time.
Cold Wax Medium:
This medium is made from unbleached beeswax, alkyd resin and odorless mineral spirits and is used to make oil colours thicker and more matte.
