Daniel Smith Oil Mediums are manufactured to the same hight standard as the Original Oil Colour. The purist grade of natural oil, cold pressed linseed oil is paler in color and less yellowing than hot pressed or solvent extracted oils and also makes a stronger film. Its ability to add gloss and transparency, as well as yield a tough, durable paint film has made linseed oil the most popular binder in oil paint for nearly five centuries. It may cause some yellowing with age. Stand oil, thicker than Linseed oil, causes oil colors to flow out as they dry, leaving minimal brush strokes. Stand oil is an unsuitable vehicle for making oil paint, but it makes an excellent painting and glazing medium when thinned with turpentine and damar varnish. It yields a tough paint film without the yellowing tendencies of refined linseed oil.
