Langridge Refined Linseed Oil may be used for the grinding of oil colours. It may also be added to oil colours and oil mediums at the discretion of the artist.
Alkali Refined Linseed Oil is the most frequently employed oil for manufacturing artists’ oil colours. It does not have as great a wetting power as Cold Pressed Linseed Oil, however, the refinement process makes it less prone to yellowing over time.
Refined Linseed Oil adds a loose, slippery quality when added to oil colours and mediums. It is recommended however, that the use of Linseed Oil, whether cold pressed or refined, should be used sparingly to extend oil colours as it is prone to yellowing more than other oils. If wishing to employ glazes or washes Langridge recommends the use of Stand Oil, a virtually non-yellowing oil, as the basis for painting mediums.
The paint film will stay open and is easily moved or reworked for up to 24 hours.
Langridge Refined Linseed Oil should be considered a ‘fat’ medium. It should not to be used for underpainting if oil colours with no additional medium are to be applied on top.
