View Full Version : Oil painting became too slick

Hello everyone. Hopefully there's somebody who can help me with this oil painting issue I keep running into. Sometimes my the surface of my oil painting becomes so slick that when I try to paint another layer the painting rejects the new glazes. My guess is I used too much medium from the previous layer and so there's no more binding capability. Has anyone else run into this problem? I'm trying to find a good solution to regain the paintings binding capability so I can keep adding new layers. Thanks,

What medium are you using for your glazes?
