Artisan Painting Medium

Could anyone advise on what's in this stuff?
I recently received a bottle from a friend, and it smells like rancid oil with some solvent added?

Re: Artisan Painting Medium

If it smells rancid I would not use it.

It is important to learn how to look up information online pertaining to ingredients and warnings. In this case, WN should be on the label. The information below is on the WN website.

Artisan Painting Medium is a stand oil based medium, ready-made from the bottle. This medium thins the consistency of Artisan oil colours and helps if your work involves creating fine details. It also improves the flow and wetting of the colour. It dries slowly to a flexible film and is good for "oiling out". Oiling out is the application of an oil medium to a painting which has sunk or lost its oil to the layer underneath.

Re: Artisan Painting Medium

Yes I read that bit about the product. It doesn't list out what the proportion is nor what the solvent is? Is it thick or thin? Is it the same thing as making my own medium except this is more convenient?

Re: Artisan Painting Medium

MSDS says there is low odor petroleum solvent (OMS)

I used some of the Artisan fast drying medium years ago,
I remember not liking anything about it, so it is long gone.

Re: Artisan Painting Medium

I once used this medium to oil out a painting on a recommendation. I thought it would never dry to the touch - took months. I disposed of mine in one of those "hazardous waste" drives. Gary
