Oil Painting Mediums

Abacus Resources stock a large range of oil painting mediums which can be used for a whole variety of effects. Painting Mediums can be used to effect oil colors when painting in the following ways -

  • To modify the working properties of the paint.
  • To influence drying rates.
  • To increase transparency.
  • To alter the surface quality (Gloss to Matt).

The difference from one painting medium to another, is how they create these effects.
