Just curious if using liquin and changing to linseed oil will cause problems on a painting, or should only one type of medium be used?
Linseed oil over Liquin's a non-issue, Sunshine; vice/versa,
Of course, as ever, one need bear in mind the traditional
motto: "fat over lean." In the latter case, though, as Liquin's
a fast drier, and linseed oil, conspicuously slow, just be
sure that the oil embedded with extra linseed oil is, in
fact, prepared to provide a solid base upon which to an-
chor that medium-laden paint.
Having stated that, though, why's ya even wanna add lin-
seed oil-up paint atop an area massed-in with alkyd resin?
Thanks Freiwald, well I used the linseed because I ran out of Liquin and where I live it is not always easy to get. I also thought it may help with oiling out an area. I'm learning bit by bit what and what not to do. Seems the more I learn, the more I don't know.
really live in the sticks, just mail order
oil, (an ingredient already in the paint)
is as ideal
medium to oil-out with. (Just rub
some oil, diluted
with plenty of solvent into
areas, till it obtains it's "wet"
not adding any third ingredient
paint, so much as just placing into
standardized formulae, the ap-
of oil, there.
Thanks Freiwald, the mail system here is muy malo!!!! If we order, or anybody for that matter in this area, and article from some supplier there is a VERY SLIM chance you'll get it, so no one bothers anymore. We wait for someone who is coming down from Canada or the States and have them bring it now. Sometimes we find it in art shops in the major centers if we are going there for a mini trip. I will use your method, sounds good. Little by little we learn a lot.
Mexico, but the mail there so poor,
even realistically expect their mail to
case, and the order was placed, aren’t
retailers, in fact, responsible to either refund,
somehow get the orders there?!
As far as
your artistic needs, though, as a regu-
painter, it appears to me you actually require
access to both oil and Liquin (As both
ingredients employed with great regularity;
continue to paint with great regularity
I’d stock up on both those, as e-
they’ll get used.
