Langridge Low Toxic Painting Medium is a flow medium using a Low-toxicity solvent (odourless) base. Langridge Low Toxic Painting Medium is a Non-yellowing medium added to oil paints to improve paint handling and promote the brushing out of colours.
Constituents: Stand Oil (40 Poise), Low Toxic Solvent, Alkali Refined Linseed Oil, Cobalt Drier.
Langridge Low Toxic Painting Medium has been constructed as an alternative to traditional turpentine based painting mediums for artists concerned about exposure to harmful solvents.
Because Langridge Low Toxic Solvent has a Permisable Exposure Level (PEL) higher than other solvents the artists exposure will not be as harmful in comparison to traditional solvents.Langridge still recommends the use of good studio ventilation, a minimum of two open windows, preferably a properly installed exhaust system.
May be added to oil colours in quantities at the discretion of the artist.Initially small additions will purely aid the flow qualities of existing oil colours.As more medium is added to the oil colour so the opacity of the resulting paint will be reduced.By adding Low Toxic Painting Medium in quantities over 70% coloured transparent glazes are created.For artists who wish to apply clean, bright glazes, it is recommended choosing transparent pigment based colours.
