A solvent free, soft gel medium for extending oil colours.
Aids fluidity and paint handling.
Non-yellowing Refined Safflower Oil base.
Refined Safflower Oil, Fumed Silica, Castor Wax, Cobalt Drier, Calcium Drier.
For best results thin with Distilled Gum Turpentine. However, Artists’ White Spirit or Langridge Low Toxic Solvent may be substituted. The use of the latter solvents (petroleum distillates) will tend to reduce the fatness of stroke and the oil film will dry with less richness due to the partial destruction of the paint film.
Langridge Oleogel is a clear gel with a characteristic Safflower Oil odour. Very fresh medium may exhibit a bluish-grey cast. The colour of the medium will not effect the oil colours with which it is mixed.
Clean brushes with any artists’ solvent (eg Gum Turpentine, Low Toxic Solvent, etc.). For further washing apply a small quantity of Sennelier Cleaner or Generals Brush Cleaner or pure olive oil soap and massage the bristles of the brush to release any remaining colour. Wash thoroughly in warm water. Leave brushes to fully dry before using for oil colours.
24-48 hours to touch dry. Any airflow over the surface will evaporate the solvent more rapidly which will reduce drying times. Full film drying 3-6 months
