Italian Artshop Genuine Turpentine 500ml
Gum Turpentine/Genuine Turpentine is obtained by the distillation of sap tapped from living pine trees. Turpentine has more solvency than mineral spirits or odourless mineral spirits. Its high solvent strength makes it the best choice for thinning oils and natural resins.
This is the traditional artists' thinner (solvent) for oil colours, mediums and varnishes. It improves the flow and dissolves wet oil colours easily and evaporates readily. Add directly to oil colours, mediums or varnishes for thinning.
Artists genuine turpentine is usually a purer and more refined version of the gum turps found at the hardware store.
