Transcript of Langridge Oil Mediums RRP

Langridge Drying OilsDrying oils act as agglomorating binders for artists oil paint and provide body to the brushstroke as the colours are spread out. Selection of the appropriate oil can alter the working quality of the paint. Performance differences include paste consistency, texture, effect on paint shades, desired drying time and mechanical strength of the paint film. Oils dry by absorbing oxygen, turning into a solid, non-reversable film. Full film drying takes up to six months

Cold Pressed Linseed OilGolden coloured oil used as a traditional binder for grinding oil colours. When used to mill oil colours or mixed with prepared colours removes the pronounced suede effect. Has increased wetting power and imparts flexibility to paint films. Use sparingly as a medium as linseed has a tendency to yellow with age. 100ml $18.70 500ml $50.49 Litre $85.85 4Litre $214.59

New Cold Pressed Walnut Oil Natural drying oil used as a traditional binder for grinding oil colours. Alternative to Linseed Oil with similar drying rates and properties. Has a long and distinguished history of use by Flemish renaissance artists. Similar tendency to yellow with age as Linseed. 100ml $18.70 500ml $50.49 Litre $85.85 4Litre $214.59

Cold Pressed Safflower OilPale slow drying oil preferred for preparing delicate colours, particularly whites and blues where the yellowing of linseed oil is more noticeable. Added to prepared oil colours for a longer working time due to its slow drying nature. Safflower oil dries to a softer film than Linseed oil. 100ml $18.70 500ml $50.49 Litre $85.85 4Litre $214.59

Langridge Solvents & Clean-upSolvents dissolve and mix with oils and resins to reduce the viscosity of paints and varnish. They also also used for the removal of oils, paint and varnishes.

Langridge SiccativesTo be added to oil paint or mediums for altering the speed of drying.

New Calcium Driers Siccative made with calcium octoate. Acts as a through-film drier for all oil colours & mediums. To be used sparingly as its overuse will destroy paint films. 100ml $13.85 500ml $37.40

Langridge PrimersPrimers are coats applied to the support to provide a desirable surface on which to paint. Most grounds are white to offer the brightest reflecting surface for light to act upon. Acrylic primers can be painted directly onto raw canvas. Do not apply over glue sizing. Oil primers need to have a coat of glue size applied first to protect the raw canvas underneath.

Oil PrimerA traditional linseed oil based oil primer. Produces a high quality white surface with good tooth and flexibility for oil painting. Reduces sinking in of colours and imparts good luminosity. Must be used on a pre-sized support (ie. rabbit skin glue or GOLDEN GAC100 on canvas or panel). 500ml $34.10 Litre $57.95 4Litre $144.95

Acrylic Primer (Premium Grade)A superior high resin, low chalk content primer with excellent hiding power due to high Titanium White loading. Suitable for oils and acrylics. Can be applied to a wide range of surfaces including raw canvas, wood and paper. No prior sizing needed. Permanently flexible ground. 500ml $25.40 Litre $45.75 4Litre $114.35

Langridge VarnishesA varnish is used to protect the finished artwork. Picture varnishes perform the following functions: . Be fully removable without disturbing the oil paint film underneath. . Be resistant to moisture and general pollutants. . Create a complete film of even reflective quality. It is the varnishes function to prevent dirt reaching the paint surface. It is much easier to remove a dirty varnish and replace that than to remove dirt from the oil painting itself, potentially damaging the paint-film.

Isolating MediumNon-reversable, oil-based medium formulated to even-out the reflective finish of the painting prior to varnishing. Dries to a non-yellowing, g
