Langridge Impasto Medium may be added to oil colours in quantities at the discretion of the artist. Mixed with oil colours, it may be applied with a brush or palette knife in thicker films than any other Langridge Medium.
Initially small additions will stiffen the handling of existing oil colours. As more medium is added, the oil colour will be suspended and extended forming a thick paste. When worked using a brush or palette knife the medium becomes slightly looser allowing for easy incorporation with colours.
The Safflower oil content in Impasto Medium is slow drying allowing for a wet-in-wet technique with very controlled manipulation of paint including soft blending. Transparent colours will display Translucency immediately and can be extended indefinitely to form thick glazes.
Langridge Impasto Medium has a high oil content and, as such, is a ‘fat’ medium. Due to it’s physical nature Langridge recommends not over painting Impasto medium with any other medium.
