Oil Mediums are great tools to enhance your oil paintings and achieve a desired outcome. They not only extend oil colors, but also modify the working properties of your oil colors. Create anything from a fluid consistency for gestural style work to a thick paste-like consistency for textural marks and dimensional elements. You can increase the transparency of paint layers and create a range of surface qualities from high gloss to matte. Oil painting mediums should not be used as a varnish or final coat.
