Jerry's Exclusive! 32 oz Gamvar & Gamsol Power Pack -Both Gamvar and Gamsol are now available together, exclusively at Jerry's in 32 oz bottles! Paint and varnish your oil paintings with confidence! Gamsol relaxes stiff oil paints and is the best solvent for cleaning brushes and palette knives. Gamsol is odorless, non-hazardous and the safest oil solvent available! When your oil painting is completely dry and paint is firm to the touch, preserve and protect it by brushing a thin layer of semi-gloss Gamvar on top. You will instantly notice that your colors have more depth and that Gamvar is virtually odorless!

Alkali Refined Linseed Oil - Processed from flax seeds. This linseed is the purest and lightest industrially produced variety.



Burnt Plate Oil - Can be added to oil-based inks to lower viscosity. 



Cold Pressed Linseed Oil - Made from the first pressing of flax seeds without heat or chemicals of any kind.



Cold Wax - Made from natural white unbleached beeswax. Mix directly into colors. Cold Wax creates an ultra-thick, matte impasto. For greater shine and flexibility mix with Galkyd medium.



"G-Gel" - Made from alkyd resin, Galkyd Gel is a colorless oil color additive that accelerates the drying rate of oil colors and enables artists to create thick transparent paintings with a moderate sheen.



Galkyd Painting Medium - Alkyd based resin painting medium that thins oil paints and maintains a strong flexible paint film. Galkyd speeds the drying rate and is excellent for glazing providing an enamel like finish. For thinning, Gamblin recommends using Gamsol or a small amount of Refined Linseed Oil.

 

Galkyd Painting Medium Lite No.2 - This low viscosity alkyd resin painting medium is a good replacement for traditional damar/ linseed oil/ turpentine combination mediums. Galkyd Lite dries within about 3 hours to a subdued gloss, and will maintain your brush strokes. For thinning, Gamblin recommends using Gamsol or a small amount of Refined Linseed Oil.

 

Galkyd Slow Drying Medium - Especially formulated to thin oil colors and give painters extended working time. To use mix equal portions of medium with oil colors to paint wet for at least a day. Since this product should not be diluted you may want to purchase the larger size.

 

Gamsol - Quality solvent and medium and for general oil painting. Gamsol is also an excellent studio and brush cleaner.

Odorless Mineral Spirits - 
Gamsol is the safest solvent that allows oil painters to utilize all traditional painting techniques without compromise.

Primary Uses for Gamsol - 
Thinning oil colors, Modifying painting mediums, Studio clean up.Gamsol is a petroleum distillate but all the aromatic solvents have been refined out of it, less than .005% remains. 



Gamvar - Conservation quality varnish for oil, acrylic and alkyd paintings. This resin varnish may be removed with a mild solvent and contains a UV stabilizer. Developed in association with the National Gallery of Art. Package makes enough varnish to cover 80 sq ft.

 

Neo-Megilp - When mixed into oil colors Neo-Megilp makes them richer and deeper and finished paintings have a luminous glow! Neo-Megilp will not darken or crack over time. For thinning, Gamblin recommends using Gamsol or a small amount of Refined Linseed Oil.

 

Oil Painting Ground - For strong, bright foundations of oil paintings. Requires only 2 coats. Formulated from alkyd resin, titanium dioxide and barium sulfate. Stiffer than traditional gesso.

 


PVA Size - Use as a barrier size between linen or cotton canvas instead of rabbit skin glue. Remains flexible and won't yellow, shrink or swell.

 

Poppy Oil - Poppy Oil's slow drying time may be useful for painters using "wet into wet" techniques. Adding 10% by volume poppy oil slows down the drying time of Gamblin Galkyd Painting Mediums.

 

Rabbit Skin Glue - Gamblin's Rabbit Skin Glue is the traditional size for fabric support on panels. It seals porous fabric and isolates it from ground or oil paints. Stretching the canvas is easy, because the size shrinks as it dries.

Safflower Oil- Gamblin's Safflower Oil is a pale, slow-drying oil. Safflower oil increases flow of oil colors and slows dry time. Use sparingly or mix with an equal amount of Gamsol to create a traditional slow-drying, low-viscosity painting medium. 


 

Solvent-Free Gel Medium - This unique, non-toxic blend of safflower oil and alkyd resin gives colors more flow and transparency, yet holds brushstrokes well. It has a moderately fast drying rate, increases gloss, and supports the broadest range of painting techniques with the least compromise across color, dry time, texture and mark-making. Contains no Gamsol or petroleum distillates.

Solvent-Free Fluid Medium- Gamblin's Solvent-Free Fluid Mediumgives oil colors more flow and transparency, It has a moderately fast drying rate that increases gloss. Made from safflower oil and alkyd resin, this medium is non-toxic and contains no Gamsol or petroleum distillates. 

 

Stand Oil - Vacuum bodied heavy oil which can be used in painting and glazing mediums. Dries to an enamel like finish.

 

Traditional Gesso - Gamblin's Traditional Gesso is a dry mixture of rabbit skin glue, gypsum, marble dust, and titanium dioxide. Paintings on gesso are more matte because of the high absorbency of traditional gesso.

 

Wax Pastilles - Small beads of naturally white unbleached beeswax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the planet! Gamblin is THE MOST environmentally conscious art supply company on the planet. If you get headaches or physical reactions to oils.... it's not the paint. It's your OMS. Replace with Gamsol and your issues will evaporate. For many who teach in a group setting.... Gamsol is on the requirement list! BTW Jerry's....they've just changed their gallon packaging. Need to update your product photo. ~lori g

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely indispensable! I just placed another order for Gamsol unscented mineral spirits! My clothes thank me. My floors thank me,and my studio thanks me! There is nothing I've used it on that would not remove my oil and cold wax! Thanks Gamsol! On to my next great piece of art!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best solvent for most purposes Gamsol really is better (for most things) than other odorless mineral spirits. I'm also a chemistry student, and I ran Gamsol, Turpenoid and regular mineral spirits on a GC-MS (look it up if you are curious) to detect benzene. Benzene is an aromatic that is highly toxic even in the parts per billion. The Gamsol had a tiny but detectable level of benzene, Turpenoid had slightly more but still very low levels of benzene, the regular mineral spirits had very high levels (exceeded OSHA recommendation- how is it even available in stores?!?). The other thing that I wasn't testing for but was very interesting is that Gamsol had much longer chain hydrocarbons than the Turpenoid. This means the Gamsol is less volatile, will take longer to evaporate and may be safer. The Turpenoid is also good but will evaporate much faster (which might be desirable for some applications).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really good product! Gamblin light is the perfect vehicle for glazing colors. The best feature, however is that it doesn't dry in the bottle, which the regular does. As a medium, it excels in drying time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would not use ant other solvent. I use the Gamsol for cleaning my brushes, and sometimes as a medium when I want to thin my paints. I feel it is safer because there are no fumes. I buy it by the gallon and I save. It is a great product, and I will use it over and over.
