"I LOVE This Stuff!
I love Lukas Painting Butter, both for my own work and in my workshops. It's heavy texture and FAST drying time are "just the ticket" for my "knife paintings". I have turned many of my students onto it, too! It's now a staple of my "must-have" supplies."
 
LUKAS Painting Butter Impasto Medium is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Medium For all levels of Artists I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It not only dries faster but can double your colored pigment! The only thing to be wary of is if you buy the big 750 mil can, there is no way to reseal the can. I tried putting it is smaller double walled containers but the air got to it & dried it out! The best value is the 200 mil Tubes. Use what you need and screw the cap back on just like your paint! It works great with a palette knife as well as brushes! I wish I found this earlier!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! The Lukas painting butter is a great product! I was very happy with the way it performed especially for such an economical price. It seems to extend oil paints without making them weak or runny. I don't know how it works but it does! It's great for impasto work if you want your oil painting to retain brush strokes. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is that it has a somewhat strong odor. I would definitely use it in a well ventilated area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this product for more texture and to use with my palette knives. I love the way my colors stay vibrant and the praise I get for the work when it is finished. I prefer the tube to the can as I don't get it used quickly enough. When I received the can of Butter it had a crust on the upper layer that I had to remove before I could use it. I have lost at least one fourth as it dries into a crust if I have a week or even less between painting times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FUN! I oil paint paint primarily with painting knives and do a lot of impasto work so Lukas painting butter is a great addition to my kit. It mixes easily with the oils and dries very quickly allowing additional coats of paint to be applied without smearing. A word of caution; the tube tells you to use adequate ventilation and I cannot over emphasize this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product!! Love this product!! Dries faster then the Williamsburg impasto that I used for years!! Also...you dont need to add much paint to it to get the color you want!! It does have a petroleum odor but the smell goes away after applied..I will be buying much more of this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great alkyd medium I use the painting butter just as I use alkyd medium. In addition I use it to build up impasto. It works exactly as advertised.

Can Lukas painting butter be used with Lukas water mixable oil paints?

Asked by: PatF
No, since the Lukas Berlin water mixable oil paint is alkyd based you should use an alkyd impasto medium. I would suggest that you look at Winsor Newtons Artisan WaterMixable Oil Color Impasto Medium item number 50102.
