Oil Mediums

Mediums for oil serve to modify the consistency of your paint (i.e., to make it thicker or more fluid,) as well as its finish and drying time. There are hundreds of recipes foroil paint mediums, from extremely simple to very complex. The basic ingredients are solvent and oil; then you add a drier, a hard resin, wax, mastic, and so on as needed.

Instructions:

Gloss
Egg-based medium is inspired from an age-old recipe, and made of oil emulsion, egg and water. Just add it to the paint on your palette and mix it well. A small quantity gives a glossy finish when you use about four or five drops for a paint nut (i.e., a rounded pile of paint about the same diameter as a quarter) is plenty. If you use more
(eight to 10 drops), it gives a matte finish. The medium creates a rich texture and helps colours take faster when applied in thin coats.
 
Venetian turpentine
Venetian turpentine, used alone or mixed with regular turpentine, creates a hard, glossy coat of paint similar to enamel. It’s perfect as a medium for glazes. You can also add it to homemade varnish as a plasticizer.
