3 Oil Painting Mediums: How to Use Them

Have you ever wanted to start oil painting? There are a TON of supplies to choose from. This video will show you three of my favorite mediums to use with my oil paints. Think of the mediums as water for watercolor, except with oil paints the mediums can speed up or slow down dry time, add thickness or thin them out. I will introduce the mediums and then do a short demonstration of how to use them with oil paints. You can follow along with me or just watch and see which ones you might want to use. We are starting some oil painting tutorials! Let us know what would you like to paint with oils in the comments below and what mediums you like to use.

The mediums I go over
Terpentine (terpenoid) – this is what you clean your brushes with, it thins oils and speeds. drying time (https://amzn.to/39Pdskd. https://amzn.to/39Uxv0A )
