Artisan Water Mixable Linseed Oil is the main binder in the Artisan colours. When mixed with colour it reduces consistency. Linseed oil is the most commonly used medium. It is combined with water or Thinner to maintain the structure of the paint film. It is also used when painting in layers to maintain the fat over lean rule: each successive layer must have more oil in it than the previous one.
A good product without the chemicals or clogging of brushes. PatrIcia Atkins (Wakefield, United Kingdom) on 18 Jun 2014
great for mixing the oils with making more translucent and fine detail work Mark Lodge (London, United Kingdom) on 18 Oct 2014
Water mixable, but just as good as normal linseed oil. Slows drying, but very useful, or necessary when painting in layers. A certain odour exists, but not too obtrusive. Used in a small room at home with no difficulty. Catherine Smith (FALKIRK, United Kingdom) on 9 Oct 2016
