Balsam Essential Oil Medium - 100ml

£25.95

This smells beautiful. Balsam essential oil medium is composed of Canada balsam, pale bodied linseed oil and spike oil. Add to oil paint for enamel-like effects (gloss and greater colour saturation), to achieve glow in glazes and to facilitate fusion of the colours and brushstrokes.

Directions

Add a small amount of Balsam Essential Oil Medium to your paint to make it brush out more eas­ily, adhere bet­ter to pre­vi­ous layers, and dry more quickly. Balsam Essential Oil Medium can be thinned with spike oil or turpentine. Mixed directly into paint on the palette, it gives colours a flowing consistency yet dries to a satin to gloss finish, depending upon the amount used.

Balsam Essential Oil Medium is an excellent substitute for Ralph Mayer’s glazing medium described in his all time classic handbook, The Artist's Handbook of Materials and Techniques, which is a medium composed of stand oil, damar varnish, and turpentine.
