Gamblin Galkyd Painting Mediums thin oil colors for painting and glazing and speed drying time of oil colors. Galkyds are made with alkyd resins. Alkyd resin used as a binder cannot hold the high pigment load of linseed oil.
Galkyd painting mediums are made with odorless mineral spirits, which can also be used to thin Galkyds and for brush and studio clean up. By using Galkyd, painters can remove turpentine from their painting process. Turpentine is the only solvent commonly available to painters that can be absorbed through healthy, unbroken skin.
Gamblin painting mediums can be mixed together. Suggested solvent: Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits
