Product Description

Gamblin Artists' Oil Painting Mediums Set

Set includes the following: 2 oz containers of Galkyd, Gamsol, Neo Meglip, Refined Linseed Oil, Cold Wax and a 37 ml tube of G-Gel along with the Gamblin Guide To Oil Painting Mediums.

  • Galkyd is an alkyd resin painting medium that increases the fluidity of oil colors and speeds their drying time. Thin layers of oil colors are dry in 24 hours. The viscosity of Galkyd is similar to traditional painting mediums made from linseed stand oil. Galkyd levels brush strokes, creates a strong flexible paint film and leaves an enamel like glossy finish. Galkyd is ready to use. Thins with odorless mineral spirits. Painters can add up to 50% by volume odorless mineral spirits to change the viscosity of Galkyd for glazing. Galkyds are excellent glazing mediums.
  • Gamsol is 100% pure odorless mineral spirits (OMS). Some painters think OMS is more toxic because you cannot smell it. This is not true. Odorless mineral spirits is less toxic because harmful aromatic solvent has been removed. By using odorless mineral spirits (OMS), you can cut down on your exposure to solvent vapors. During a three hour painting session, about 20% of OMS evaporates in the air around you. Compare that with the evaporation rate of turpentine, which is so fast that during a three hour painting session, approximately 90% of the turpentine evaporates.
  • Neo Meglip Oil Painting Medium is a soft, silky gel. Neo Megilp gives body to paint, decreases viscosity, and can produce a luminous Turner-like atmosphere, suspending and supporting paint in a soft gel. And it is made from contemporary materials so it will not turn yellow or dark as it did in the 17th and 18th centuries. Neo Megilp can also replace Maroger Medium for artists who love the working properties but are now concerned about Maroger's poor aging qualities.
  • Linseed Oil - Refined (low acid) is pressed from American flax seeds. This is as light and pure as industrially produced linseed oil can be made. Use in moderation to thin oil colors or as an ingredient in traditional painting mediums.
  •   Cold Wax can be used to make oil colors thicker and more matte. A soft paste formulated to knife consistency, Gamblin Cold Wax medium is made from naturally white unbleached beeswax, alkyd resin and odorless mineral spirits (OMS). Gamblin Cold Wax Medium can be thinned to brush consistency by dissolving in a small amount of OMS. The surface of paintings made with beeswax mediums will become only as hard as a beeswax candle. Adding Galkyd to cold wax painting medium/oil colors mix will increase the sheen and flexibility of the paint film. Use a small amount to make Galkyds more matte. Gamblin Cold Wax Medium contains no oil so it can be applied as a wax varnish over a dry oil painting.

  • Galkdy Gel or "G-Gel" is a gelled alkyd resin painting medium, which Robert formulated for painters who want to create transparent impasto. Thixotropic G-Gel holds marks and brush strokes. G-Gel makes impasto of approximately 1/4" thick. You can apply multiple layers. G-Gel does not contain driers so it does not dry as fast as most gel mediums. Adding driers causes oil paintings to darken and become brittle over time. G-Gel contains a very small amount of silica so it is very transparent and lightweight.
