Essentially a Walnut oil based Oleogel.
Walnut Oil Gel is a thixotropic (meaning the more it is worked the more fluid it becomes) painting medium made with walnut oil and pyrogenic silica. lt is a clear pale amber gel that adds transparency and thixotropic body to paint. Add pigments or extenders to thicken it for creating impasto effects that do not sink in. It will increase the drying time of oil paint.
Walnut Oil Gel does not contain driers or solvents, so it is safe to use in oil painting without worry of cracking.
Walnut Oil Gel adds transparency to whites without losing the body of the paint
In the above image the Walnut Oil Gel is in the center, Lead White on the left and a mixture of Walnut Oil Gel and Lead White on the right. Lead White is stiff, plastic and short, but when mixed with Walnut Oil Gel the mixture is semi-transparent, soft, yet sculptural.
Walnut Oil Gel increases transparency without flow out and leveling
In the above image French Raw Sienna is on the left and a mixture of Walnut Oil Gel and Raw Sienna on the right. Below each is a brush out of the above examples. Rublev Colours French Raw Sienna is long, yet holds strokes well. When Walnut Oil Gel is added to Raw Sienna it increases transparency without causing the flow out and leveling of brushstrokes.
Fast delivery . Lovely solvent free gel to mix oil paints.
Order delivered in super-fast time; will buy from the Supreme Paint Company again.
Wouldn’t use anything else.
This is great. l's particularly good when, towards the end of a painting, I need to work on fine detail. I prefer it to ordinary walnut oil. I seem to have more control over the consistency when I'm adding it to the paint.
Excellent product. Minimal amounts required to thin paints.
Great stuff. I have used it up already and ready for some more. !
Having been wholly won over to Oleogel it seemed only natural to try this walnut oil gel. It's great; so much so that I've just ordered some more, just to ensure that I've got plenty to hand. I use walnut oil for fine detail towards the end of a painting and find that it works like magic. Walnut oil gel makes these final stages all the easier and more pleasurable.
A simple medium to control and use.
Don't know how I ever painted without this! I'll be using this from now on instead of my regular walnut oil.
Thank you !
