Venetian Medium is an oil-painting medium based on the research that 16th century Venetian painters added powdered glass to their paint. Venetian Medium contains leaded crystal glass powder, the palest bodied linseed oil, sun-thickened walnut oil with small amounts of wax, odorless mineral spirits and lead drier. Spread thinly onto the surface and paint directly into it as a couch or add directly to paint nut. Smooths the edges of brush or knife strokes. Venetian Medium is fast setting and dries to a satin finish.
Directions: Spread thinly onto the surface and paint directly into it or mix directly into paint on the palette to give colors a flowing consistency that holds brush strokes yet dries to a satin finish. Use to �oil out� or as a painting couch by rubbing a thin layer onto completely dried paint. Gives paint a longer, flowing consistency.
Recommendation: To prevent Venetian Medium from skinning in the can while in storage, add a small amount of linseed oil, covering the surface of the medium.
WARNING! CONTAINS LEAD AND MINERAL SPIRITS. Do not take internally. Avoid eye and skin contact. Avoid long exposure by inhalation. Use with adequate ventilation. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN AND PETS. Conforms to ASTM D 4236 health requirements.
