The satin alkyde medium thins oils, giving them a uniform lacquered look and enhancing the brightness. It also speeds up their drying time.

  • Texture: smooth
  • Finish: satin
  • Drying time: quick

The alkyde medium is recommended for the “light-dark” technique. When playing with light variation, it can be combined with colours to create a base paint layer, or “imprimatura”.
