The Xavier de Langlais egg medium makes paints more creamy, accelerates their drying time and enables painters to create layers of velvety oil paint with a matt or glossy finish according to the amount used. It creates a matt (8 to 10 drops) or glossy (4 to 5 drops) look.
This highly original recipe from Xacier de Langlais comes from early Italian painters who used an egg-based emulsion to set and hold the colour. The wet-look technique is called “tempera” and is perfectly balanced and stable to create perfect brush strokes. We recommend shaking it well before use so that the paint is nice and creamy.
