one of those mediums that makes you wonder if there’s anything Gamblin can’t
do. This alkyd resin thins oil paints, making them more fluid, meaning you’ll
see elevated levels of transparency and gloss. Mix in some more and you’ll
change the paint’s texture, smoothing your strokes and getting a unique, harder
surface once things dry. And that’s Galkyd’s claim to fame: its drying
properties. Oil is a notoriously slow dryer, but Galkyd speeds up the process.
In that respect, maybe you could call it a closer because it finishes up what
you started. But, like many of Gamblin’s products, it’ll probably just leave
you saying "wow."
