Refined Linseed Stand Oil
£7.96 – £29.38
You can add linseed oil to your oil paints to increase flow however an excess will lead to some apparent yellowing due to the natural colour of the oil. Applying the paint layers thinly is then seen as desirable to avoid other defects of excess such as wrinkling.
- – Refined Linseed Stand Oil is a viscous, pale oil medium extracted from Linseed.
- – It will level out brushstrokes in oil paint and slow the drying process.
- – It has a honey-like viscosity and should be used sparingly.
Please note soft materials which have absorbed linseed oil should be stored in sealed containers, as the oil will oxidise when exposed to the air. This chemical reaction releases so much heat that the rags may spontaneously combust. Make sure the lid of the container is closed securely and store in a cool place. Brushes and tools used with linseed oil should be cleaned with white spirit.
