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 4 out of 5 by from Gamar Picture Varnish I bought Gamvar Picture Varnish and I am quite happy with it. It can be brushed on as soon as the oil paint is dry to the touch so you don't have to wait long. It gives a semi-gloss coating and protection. I don't see much information about the product. Has anyone else used it with good results? Can you put on 2 thin coats?

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.

what is the difference between the solvent free gel medium and the fluid medium?

Asked by: jule
Gamblin Solvent-Free Gel is the only solvent-free painting medium that supports a broad range of painting techniques with minimal compromise. Solvent-Free Gel gives colors more flow and transparency, yet holds the shape of your brushmark. Solvent-Free Gel has a moderately fast drying rate and increases gloss. Made from safflower oil and alkyd resin, Gamblin Solvent-Free Gel is non-toxic and contains no Gamsol or petroleum distillates. On the other hand Gamblin Solvent-Free Fluid painting medium gives oil colors more flow and transparency. It has a moderately fast drying rate and increases gloss. Made from safflower oil and alkyd resin, Gamblin Solvent-Free Fluid is non-toxic and contains no Gamsol or petroleum distillates. To ensure proper drying and prevent beading-up of paint layers, Solvent-Free Fluid should be used in moderation with oil colors – no more than 25% by volume. To avoid wrinkling, apply mixtures of Solvent-Free Fluid and oil colors thinly. For underpainting, we recommend adding Gamsol to Solvent-Free Fluid.
