If you're talking about the new Neo-Meglip (an alkyd version of Maragors soft gel), I tried it and it was okay...

It doesn't act like a true Maragors, but it does dry to a nice glossy finish--but takes a LONG time for an alkyd--48-72 hours...

Keep it mind that I am not a regular alkyd fan, or a regular user... Others who favor Liquin or the like may love it...

The first time I used it was very good. A nice
finish did not have to varnish the painting had
a nice satin finish. It is very hot in Florida and
the second time, it was too thick. I contacted
Gamblin. And you need to:

"In the mean time add a small amount of Gamsol or other odorless mineral spirit to the bottle you have. Shake it like crazy. Do this just to the point that the medium will come out of the bottle with a gentle shake"

Here I had no problem with it drying very fast.

Hope this helps.

:) d. garden: See the August 2002 issue of "The Artist's Magazine" p.30. It has a note in the Studio Supplies page on Gamblin's new medium: Neo Megilp
and Gamblin's website is to be found at www.gamblincolors.com

:) Best wishes!

before using this product one should find out if it is a combination of linseed oil and mastic varnish, these two combined are FATAL to a painting.
the best way to keep paint from dying is to use as little medium as possible
