Description

Fattest Medium.
Thickest and oiliest, slowest drying medium.
Used as the final medium in the (progressive) sequence of Mediums No.1, 2 & 3 when paintings are completed over many successive days.
Mediums 1, 2 & 3 can also be intermixed to create additional steps in 'fat over lean' sequence.
1 Litre bottle.

When one layer of oil paint contains an equal amount of oil as the next layer, the top layer will dry while the bottom layer will be deprived of oxygen and remain wet. This will cause wrinkling and eventually cracking. To prevent this problem, use Artists’ Oil Painting Medium No. 1 first and then Artists’ Oil Painting Medium No. 2 for subsequent layers. This will give an even tension throughout the painting. This method is known as ‘lean to fat’.
Painting Medium No. 3 is viscous and ‘fatter’ for those who like a heavier medium. It should be used over the leaner mediums.
