PM7 – For Oil Paint

Oleo Impasto Medium


My Oleo Impasto Medium is a gel made from fumed silica and linseed oil, the combination of which imparts great luminosity, particularly with transparent colours. Use this in varying amounts with a brush or knife to achieve extra body.

This medium has an average drying speed and increases the transparency of oil colours. Pigment can be added and ground to make your own oil paints.

Michael Harding Napthol Red artists' quality oil paint

You can add it with a brush or knife, in varying amounts, to achieve extra body.

Over the years, many artists have asked for ways to extend their paint. This is something I frown upon because extenders often make paint more vulnerable. But given the demand, I’ve formulated something to my liking that has a pleasant linseed oil scent.

Mix it with Quinacridone Gold and be astonished!

Recommendation: Add 10-20% to neat oil colour as required.

Available in 100ml, 250ml, and 1 litre
