Langridge Refined Linseed Oil

Untitled-29Linseed is the most widely used oil because when dry it forms the toughest, most resilient paint films.

Used in small quantities, it adds a soft, slippery quality when added to oil colours. The paint film will stay open and is easily moved or reworked for up to 24 hours.

Because linseed oils yellow or darken with time, some more dramatically than others, it is recommended that the use of linseed oil should be kept to a minimum as a medium to aid fluidity or transparency.

Available in 100ml, 500ml and 1 litre.

Langridge Cold Pressed Linseed Oil

Untitled-28Cold Pressed Linseed Oil has greater wetting power than refined linseed oils and is often recommended for hand milling of oil  paints. When used to mill oil colours or even when mixed with prepared oil colours produces a pronounced stroke to the brushmark, so that strokes of  different directions and application show a marked ‘suede’ effect.

Used even in small quantities, it adds a loose, slippery quality when added to oil colours. The paint film will stay open and is easily moved or reworked for up to 24 hours. Cold Pressed Linseed Oil creates a flexible paint film longer than any other artist’s drying oil.

Available in 100ml, 500ml and 1 litre.

Langridge Stand Oil

Untitled-27Stand Oil is a virtually non-yellowing drying oil. Thick and honey-like, it cannot be used without the addition of Distilled Gum Turpentine or equivalent solvent. It has pronounced levelling qualities and produces an enamel-like effect when mixed with oil paints.

Stand Oil based mediums will set-up to a tack that grabs any succeeding brush strokes. The wet, but tacky paint surface can be readily painted into without moving freshly applied paint. Excellent for controlled paint manipulation.

Available in 100ml, 500ml and 1 litre.
