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."
Solvent-Free Gel gets your paints and pencils to do what you want them to do.
And, because it’s solvent-free, you know it’s safe. The safflower oil and alkyd
resin ensures the product is gentle on you. But that doesn’t mean this gel is
wimpy. No, unlike other solvent-free mediums, Solvent-Free Gel has a ton of
applications. Search around the web or duck into any artist forum and you’ll
find someone gabbing about a new technique that uses Solvent-Free Gel as the
facilitator. Really, the uses are as limitless as your imagination, it’s just
that Gamblin helps to bridge the gap and turns your dreams into a reality. Oh,
and it dries moderately quickly; as if Solvent-Free Gel needed another virtue.
