Pure unrefined Cold Pressed Linseed Oil - enhances the flow and reduces brush markes, dries in about 24 to 48 hours.
Zest-it Linseed oil comes direct from a farm in the UK that produces Flaxseed/Linseed oil for dietary and culinary use. It is cold pressed to extract the oil without the use of heat, solvent or chemicals.
The unrefined Cold-Pressed Linseed oil is filtered to remove any suspended mucilage or particulate and is ideal for use with oil paint or for grinding your own pigments. It is the suspended mucilage and particulate that turns 'brown' over time, not the oil itself, so the extra filtering gives an oil that is less prone to yellowing.
Cold-Pressed Linseed oil is very useful for those wishing to use less solvents in their work, working practice will need slight adjustment as a whole painting can be executed with just Cold-Pressed Linseed oil. Only a tiny amount needs to be added to the oil paint to alter it's working properties, we would consider this a 'fat' medium, so it is not advisable to place a solvent thinned paint layer over it, as this could cause cracking.
