Non-yellowing free-flowing medium added to oil and alkyd paints to improve paint handling and promote the brushing out of colours.
Initially small additions will aid the flow qualities of your oil colours. As more medium is added to the oil paint the transparency will be increased due to the further dispersion of the pigment throughout the medium.
After 20-30 minutes of applying Langridge Painting Medium the surface will set-up to a tack that grabs any succeeding brush strokes. The wet, but tacky, paint surface can be readily painted into, even quite aggressively, without moving or disturbing the areas of fresh paint underneath. This allows for a wet-in-wet technique with very controlled manipulation of paint including soft blending.
The stand oil used in the Painting Medium has pronounced levelling qualities. If more than 50% is added to the oil paint, the resulting paint film will exhibit an enamel finish with little or no physically raised brush marks.
The stand oil content in the medium ensures pale colours stay bright whilst deep tones are enriched.
In accordance with all Langridge Painting Mediums, Painting Medium is formulated with a proportion of oil to solvent that can be used without restriction in glazes and washes without risking under-binding the pigment from the oil.
- May be added to oil colours in quantities at the discretion of the artist.
- “Fat” medium – do not use for underpainting or under oil paints with no added medium
- 24-48 hours to touch dry. Any airflow over the surface will evaporate the solvent more rapidly which will reduce drying times. Full film drying 3-6 months
