Description

Cold-Pressed Linseed Oil is pressed from flaxseeds without the use of heat or solvents.

Use

Cold-pressed linseed oil is sometimes recommended when grinding dry pigment to make oil paint, because of its higher acidity than alkali-refined linseed oil. Used as a medium with oil colors for thinning, lower gloss and transparency, and pronouncing brush marks.

Use turpentine, spike oil or mineral spirits as the solvent for oil painting mediums and for brush and studio clean up.
