Oil Paint Issues:

  1. Glazing Medium Lynnxe
    2 parts Stand Oil
    1 part linseed
    1 part damar varnish
    a few drops of Cobalt Drier
    The stand oil makes it spread into a nice,  glossy surface with no brush strokes. Never needed to varnish. 
  2. Traditional Recipe – Luckskind
    1 – part Damar Varnish
    1 – part Stand Oil
    5 – Parts Pure Gum Turpentine
    (optional: a couple of drops of Cobalt Drier)
    This is an old, traditional recipe, but it works very well as
    a medium and even as a sort of ‘retouch varnish.’Great for glazing and for giving transparent colors an almost stained-glass effect.
    Works very well with FLAKE WHITE & genuine Naples Yellow.
  3. Thirds – r_bear11
    1/3 linseed oil
    1/3 damar varnish
    1/3 turpentine
    Because of the texture I go for, I use this mixture VERY sparingly.
    I use permalba white, which gets a little too tacky when the weather gets hot, so I add a little.
    I also use it when the Cerulean blue gets dry.
