for water mixability
Jelly like ("lean") medium for mixing oil colours with water instead of organic solvents such as turpentine or turpentine substitute. Increases gloss and transparency, reduces viscosity; harmonizes drying process; odourless. Mix 2 parts of oil colour and 1 part of medium W gel on a palette, than add water like you want; if necessary add more medium W gel. Painting tools can be cleaned with water. There is no change of the product quality based on the colour change of the raw material alkyd resin. Dosage: 50%.
for bronze effects
Ready-to-use binder for Schmincke Oil bronzes. For brilliant metallic effects on oil paintings and several other surfaces like wood, metal or gypsum. The gilding remains after drying soluble to turpentine respectively turpentine substitute. (Pre-tests are recommended prior to the application of varnish!)
