Reduced Odour


Art Spectrum Lean Medium

Art Spectrum Lean Medium  is a very low odour alternative to the ‘traditional’ Art Spectrum Medium No.1, with similar properties and applications. The difference is that Art Spectrum Odourless Solvent is used in place of Gum Turpentine in this medium, making it ideal for those who are sensitive to the strong turpentine fumes.

The lean to fat rule:

When one layer of oil paint contains an equal amount of oil as the next layer, the top layer will dry while the bottom layer will be deprived of oxygen and remain wet. This will cause wrinkling and eventually cracking.

To prevent this problem, use lean first and fat for subsequent layers.

This will give an even tension throughout the painting.
