Artists' Refined Linseed Oil
for use with oils
Artists' Refined Linseed Oil is an Oil Painting Medium.
This Linseed Oil is used to reduce and thin the consistency of oil or alkyd paints, increase transparency, the gloss and to slow the drying process. As well as yield a tough, durable paint film.
As the preferred oil painting medium, FAS Linseed Oil is renowned for its ability to extend the drying time of paint—an advantageous feature when working with layered compositions.
Our refined Linseed Oil enhances gloss and transparency while imparting a smoother consistency to oil paint. It is meticulously processed to remove free fatty acids, gums, and extraneous materials, resulting in a boiled, refined grade. This variant dries more quickly and forms exceptionally rigid, hard films.
