Clarified Linseed Oil

Our clarified linseed oil is a natural oil extracted from roasted linseed. It is the driest and most resistant of all painting oils. Its slightly amber colouring makes it particularly suitable for darker colours, as sunlight can cause lightening and yellowing.
This highly transparent additive adds fluidity to the oil with a glossy finish.

It is mainly used to make a painting medium, combined with turpentine or mineral spirits, the proportions of which must be adjusted to obtain a medium that is more or less lean and to respect the “fat on lean” rule.

It also allows the paste to be re-filled to give it a little more suppleness and to work longer (the setting time is extended by two).
