OIL MEDIUMS (FLUID)

Oil mediums are used for changing the consistency of the paint, rendering it more convenient for brushing or applying, or more suitable for the artists’ particular technique, which may require paint that is thicker or thinner, faster or slower drying, more transparent or opaque. Glazes are added to paint to create thin, but permanent, veils of paint. The resin content creates optical depth similar to a colour varnish.

Underpainting Medium

Lean medium to be used for the ‘first-sketch’ in painting. Low oil content for rapid drying, minimising chances of cracking when overpainting with full strength colours. Stand Oil base ensures non-yellowing of artwork. (Stand Oil, Linseed Oil, Gum Turpentine, Cobalt Driers)Product Info Sheet

Painting Medium

Free-flowing medium for oils that improves paint handling. Quickly dries to a tack but remains fresh so that it may still be painted into. Perfect for wet on wet technique. Stand Oil base ensures non-yellowing of artwork. Pale colours stay bright while deep tones are enriched. (Stand Oil, Linseed Oil, Gum Turpentine, Cobalt Driers)Product Info Sheet

Glaze Medium

A resin rich oil medium that gives oil colours increased translucency. Perfect for the creation of optical depth and soft suffusions of colour. Used for traditional thin glazes and fine detail work. Stand Oil base ensures non-yellowing. (Stand Oil, Damar Resin, Gum Turpentine, Cobalt Driers)Product Info Sheet

Matte Medium

A matte version of Langridge Painting Medium for adding fluidity and improve paint handling. It quickly dries to a tack but remains fresh so that it may still be painted into. Stand Oil base ensures non-yellowing of artwork. Caution should be used when painting with deep tones as the matting agent raises the tonal values slightly.
