Boiled Linseed Oil - Provides texture and roundness to the brushstroke. Dries more quickly than normal linseed oil. Provides a glossy, slightly amber-colored film. Best with dark colors, avoid excess.
Clarified Linseed Oil - Purified oil, with a natural amber tint. Adds body to the paste. Very transparent, but has a tendency to yellow over time. Best with dark or slow drying colors. Does not affect drying time. Avoid excess.
Essential Mineral Oil - Evaporates less quickly than petroleum spirits. Creamy texture under the brush and leaves no trace after evaporation. Allows the paste to remain fresh longer while working. May be used to clean fresh paint from brushes.
Poppy Seed Oil - Extracted from poppy seeds, clearer and with less yellowing than linseed oils. Recommended for light colors, blues in particular. The drying sped may be balances by adding the correct amount of Sennelier Courtrai Drier. Avoid excess.
Safflower Oil - Clarified vegetable oil, a good drier with low acidity. Characterized by resistance to yellowing and excellent compatibility with pigments. Mix with oil colors to accentuate their fluidity, transparency and gloss without altering the hue's brilliance during drying.
Stand Linseed Oil - Full bodied, very bright, clear, honey-like viscosity medium made by heating pure linseed. Improves transparency, fluidity and smoothes brushstroke. Slows drying, slightly yellowing.
