We at Jackson's Art Supplies are all artists and we understand that artists are looking for the best materials at the best prices. To answer this need we have created ranges of our own brand art materials. The Jackson's brand means good quality and excellent value. Our range of painting mediums for use with oil colours is no exception.
Oil Painting Mediums each have their own purpose and the artists chooses which they will use based on their particular need. The mediums will thin or thicken oil colour, make it dry faster or slower, glossier or more matte. All mediums contain oil or resin that fulfills the basic oil painting rule of 'fat over lean', meaning that if you paint in layers you should add more oil or medium to each successive layer to insure a good structure that will dry properly and will not crack.
It is advised to store Jackson's Oil Mediums at a stable temperature. Storage in an overly hot or cold environment will affect the consistency of the product.
