Alkyd Resin - About the consistency of a thick Stand Oil, this medium is made from pure Alkyd Resin and just a slight amount of odorless thinner. It is fast drying, non-yellowing and produces a flexible paint film. Useful in making other mediums or used straight as a glazing and general painting medium on its own. Completely compatible with oil paint. Imparts a satin gloss finish.
Beeswax Blocks and Pellets - Beeswax makes varnishes and paints appear matte. In encaustic painting, it is used as the binding medium. It can be blended with oils, resins and diluents for use in oil painting media. A small addition to oil paint is said to slow drying and reduce yellowing, as well as improve the stability of paint and make it more suitable for impasto effects. It may also be used as a final varnish and employed in temperas.
Damar Crystals - Damar Crystals can be dissolved in turpentine to make your own Damar Varnish. Crystals must be soaked in pure gum turpentine to produce traditional Damar Varnish, used on finished paintings as a transparent, removable high-gloss protective coating. Also useful as an ingredient in medium recipes.
Lead Oil Ground - A traditional ground made from pure lead carbonate and just enough marble dust for the desired amount of tooth and absorbency. A heavy, thick formulation. Virtually extinct for the last few years, now available again!
Rabbit Skin Glue - This is genuine rabbit skin glue, not hide or hoof.
Titanium Oil Ground - At last, a high quality oil ground that contains no lead! Composed of Titanium white, marble dust, and linseed oil for flexibility. A soft, fine white. So heavy it can be cut in half with turpentine.
Wax Medium - Pure beeswax, damar resin, and refined linseed oil. No parafins or microcrystallines. Can be used for glazing and impasto.
