Re: Liquin+linseed oil

Annotation: I just saw on YouTube that Jos van Riswick uses a medium made of Liquin plus linseed oil in his paintings. Quote: "I use a medium of equal parts linseed oil and liquin, and oil out the panel before I start to paint. ..." ==> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3MBC...eature=related

Re: Liquin+linseed oil

I have asked Winsor&Newton (on YouTube) this double question:
Quote:
Can I thin Liquin (Original or Fine Detail) with odorless mineral spirit? I am doing this, but have some doubts if this will not have negative consequences. I even did that with some old, tacky Liquin, and it seemed to be a perfect way of "regenerating" it.

And yet another question: Can I mix Liquin with Linseed oil if I want to slow it down a little bit? I tried this too, and it seemed to work. Any negative side effects?
They answered:
Quote:
You can thin Liquin with solvent, we can’t 100% guarantee the results without knowing the exact brand/medium but in theory there should be no issue. Yes, Liquin can be mixed with Linseed oil, when you mix it with oil colour you are effectively mixing it with linseed oil for most colours anyway. To ensure the oil painting rules are followed always ensure that there is more medium/oil in each successive layer.
And that is what I am doing now. Also using stand oil instead of normal Linseed. And it seems to work fine. That is nice, fluid stuff, not too tacky and still quite fast...
