This thinner has been specially developed to maintain the oily feel, keeps Artisan colour open longer than water. Although water is suitable as a diluent for the colour, its speedy evaporation can make the colour thicken upon the palette much quicker than conventional oil colour would when used with turpentine. As Artisan thinner does not form an emulsion with the colour, there is less colour change than there would be with water.
This oil reduces the consistency and improves flow of Artisan oil colours. It also increases gloss and transparency. Slows drying. Can be cleaned up with water.Use when painting in layers to maintain the "fat over lean" rule.
