Re: Is this a safe area to paint?

Thank you so much you guys! I will consider in investing in some walnut oil, solvent free gel and experiment using no solvent.

Re: Is this a safe area to paint?

You can also invest in acrylic. Using acrylic underlayers, you can do more than a half work with waterborne paint and you can also save month of wasted drying time to more productive work. The you can try wet-in-wet oil painting technique to finalize your painting. The only "solvent" you need for wet-in-wet is regular refined Linseed oil. It is cheap, durable, best drying oil and widely available stuff. Best way to simplify painting process. I just confused how many suspected, expensive and less useful products were proposed for artists nova days!
