Oil painting tips

Remember, you can't use soap and water to clean oil paint out of your brushes. It is best to soak them in some type of paint thinner, alcohol or special brush soap and use artist quality brush washers & cleaners.

Oil painters will use often solvents for various purposes and techniques such as: Thinning Oil Paint: making them more spreadable and easier to work with (For the The Best Purified Odor-Free Artist Solvent For Thinning Oils We Recommend - StudioSolv™ Artist Odorless Oil Thinner). Removing Mistakes: Solvents can be used to remove mistakes or unwanted oil paint from a canvas without damaging the underlying layers. Mixing Mediums: Artists often use mixing mediums with oils, facilitating blending and creating various textures and effects. Speeding Drying Time: Certain solvents, like alkyd mediums, can accelerate the drying time of oils, allowing for faster layering and completion of the artwork.

Want Less Cracking in Your Oil Painting? Fat Over Lean for oil painting - Fat over Lean refers to the oil painting principle that applying paint with a higher ratio of oil to color pigments OVER paint with a lower ratio of oil to color pigments can ensure a more flexible paint film that will not crack later on down the road when the paint dries and ages.
