Liquin Original - The reliable favourite which continues to be our most popular liquid alkyd medium. A general purpose low gloss medium which improves flow and transparency. It mixes easily with the brush or knife and smooths brushwork.
Liquin Original suits a textured oil technique as is seen with Monet or Renoir.
Liquin Impasto Medium - A semi-gloss, quick drying, non-yellowing impasto medium. It retains crisp textures and brush strokes without any visible levelling and extends tube colour and provides bulk. It also allows more blending time.
When dry, it forms a flexible, tough film that can be varnished in the normal way. Liquin Impasto and Liquin Oleopasto are the only mediums that safely thicken oil colour. For heavier brush work or palette knife – a la Van Gogh!
Liquin Fine Detail Medium - The most fluid of the Liquin family of products, this gloss medium is ideal for fine detailed work. It is also perfect for use in smoothly blended areas with no brushmarks.
It is the modern alternative to the traditional copal mediums that were based on natural resins and offered fast drying properties to the artist. As with all Liquin products, it offers an increased resistance to yellowing.
Liquin Fine Detail produces a smooth surface picture, absent of brushmarks, as with a Van eyck or Durer.
This Liquin formulation offers a slight gel that breaks down on brushing (thixotropic) and flows out to give a non-drip effect when mixed with colour. It is ideal for glazing. It dries to a gloss film that has an increased resistance to yellowing.
This product offers all the handling properties traditionally seen with the historic Meglip mediums but without the tendencies to crack and yellow which are normally associated with mastic mediums.
Choosing Liquin Light Gel is like selecting non drip gloss paint for decorating in favour of liquid gloss (Liquin Fine Detail). It provides looser handling such as is seen in a Rubens or Gainsborough painting.
