Over the years, many artists have asked for ways to extend the paint. This is, of course, something that I frown upon because there are many products on the market which make the paint more vulnerable by adding extenders. But seeing that artists want a good product to address their needs I decided to formulate something to my liking.
My new Oleo Impasto Medium is a gel made from fumed silica and linseed oil which imparts great luminosity, particularly with transparent colours. If you mix it with Quinacridone Gold…WOW…. need I say more?
The gel texture imparts tremendous body and is super easy to work with. Although I am not a fan of extenders, I do say this one is “jolly good”!
