Langridge Odourless Solvent

Untitled-3Langridge Low Toxic Solvent is supplied as a low toxicity alternative to traditional artists’ solvents, reducing exposure to the more harmful compounds associated with turpentine, etc.

Associated issues with prolonged contact with traditional artists’ solvents such as dermatitis, skin and respiratory organ irritation, headaches, etc. can be dramatically reduced or removed by using Langridge Low Toxic Solvent.

Because its’ Permisable Exposure Level (PEL) is higher than other solvents the artists exposure will not be as harmful in comparison to traditional solvents. Langridge still recommends the use of good studio ventilation, a minimum of two open windows, preferably a properly installed exhaust system.

It can be used as a diluent when used in small quantities with oil colours. Extreme care should be taken, however, in diluting purely with Low Toxic Solvent as its over-use can easily underbind paint and lead to a dull, dry lifeless film with potential for dusting or flaking off. Artists wishing to create very fluid working qualities should refer to painting mediums constructed for that purpose.

Available in 100ml, 500ml, 1 Litre, 4 Litre

Langridge Distilled Gum Turpentine

Untitled-4Natural diluent when used in small quantities with oil colours. Unlike petrolleum distillate based solvents (Low Toxic Solvent, Mineral Turpentine, White Spirit, etc.) its function is not solely to break-down oil but aids in dilution, keeping the richness and fatness of the oil with which it is mixed.Care should be taken, however, in diluting purely with Gum Turpentine as its over-use can easily underbind paint and lead to a dull, dry lifeless film with potential for dusting or flaking off. Artists wishing to create very fluid working qualities should refer to painting mediums constructed for that purpose.

Gum Turpentine can be added to artists’ drying oils to add extra fluidity. It is  generally found that Gum Turpentine has greater wetting powers than petrolleum distillates so that much smaller quantities may be added to achieve fluidity of paints and oils.

Available in 100ml, 500ml, 1 Litre, & 4 Litre.

Lefranc & Bourgeois Quick Drying Petroleum

Untitled-6Highly volatile, gives a matt finish, also called White Spirit.
This solvent is purely of mineral origin. Its principal quality is that it evaporates completely, leaving no trace.

Available in 75ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1liter bottles

Lefranc & Bourgeois Rectified Turpentine

Untitled-7Turpentine is  obtained by distilling the gum from pine trees. It is then rectified, which makes it colourless and increases its fluiditiy. It is mainly used for thinning oil colours, therby making them easier to use for the basic sketch by fluidifying them without altering their hue.

Less volatile than Quick drying petroleum, it gives less of a matt appearence to the work.

Available in 75ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1liter bottles

Lefranc & Bourgeois Oil of Spike Lavender

Winsor & Newton Artisan Thinner 75ml

wn thinnerThis thinner has been specially developed to maintain the oily feel & keeps Winsor & Newton Artisan colour open longer than water.

Although water is suitable as a diluent for the colour, its speedy evaporation can make the colour thicken upon the palette much quicker than conventional oil colour would when used with turpentine. As Artisan thinner does not form an emulsion with the colour, there is less colour change than there would be with water.
