Lean Painting Medium

Sale price Price $17.00 Regular price

Contents: Virgin cold-pressed linseed oil, washed and sun-lightened; odorless mineral spirits, and spike lavender oil.

Ideal as a ”couch” to paint into for the initial stages of the painting. This lends a beautiful feel to the brushwork adding fluidity and movement. Our Lean Painting Medium uses our own cleansed and sun-thickened linseed oil. The sun naturally thickens, decolorizes and causes the oil to dry very quickly. The medium is virtually colorless and transparent allowing the paint to flow effortlessly. The addition of odorless mineral spirits and spike lavender oil makes this medium perfect for toning the ground with a semi-transparent color which lets light reflect through the paint layers back to the surface radiating light. 

A small amount of oil of spike lavender adds a good bond for subsequent layers of paint. If painting in layers, make sure that the last layer is completely dry before overpainting.

The odorless mineral spirits we use is of the highest purity available with no aromatic components. These are completely removed through refinement. To be used only with adequate ventilation.
