Linseed is a yellowish oil. This oil has been extracted from the seeds of the flax plant without the use of heat. When mixed with oil paint, linseed oil will increase the gloss and transparency of the paint, and will thin the paint so that it flows more easily and does not hold brushmarks. It will also slow the drying time of the paint. Linseed oil is also highly suitable for use with dry ground pigments.
Please note soft materials which have absorbed linseed oil should be stored in sealed containers, as the oil will oxidise when exposed to the air. This chemical reaction releases so much heat that the rags may spontaneously combust. Brushes and tools used with linseed oil should be cleaned with white spirit.
We cannot transport this product by air; some European destinations are available by road, but this will incur an additional delivery charge.
