Amount of clove oil in brush dip and SDM

I see that the amount of clove oil in the brush dip should be 2%, but in the Slow Dry Medium it's 2 parts out of 23 (11.5%)

Why is there such a big difference?

    Consider the amount of pigment and the work that the clove oil has to do to inhibit the cross linking in a bucket of paint compared with coating a brush.

    Proportionately think about spreading the paint on a brush over a canvas compared with spreading a container of paint over the same canvas. I would guesstimate a brush will spread about two or three square inches whereas even my smallest snap caps will cover several square feet.
