@sunshine793 this can happen. I've had my palette where oil just seeps out of the dollops of paint. This might be related to my not properly shaking up the paint tubes first.@MikeDerby also mentions the oil flowing in his (if I recall) Austin Blog post, where he mentions that the trick is to let the palette sit out for a day or so to slightly thicken up the paint.
@sunshine793 As well as the good advice from @PaulB above: If it seeps from the puddles, I re-mix them. I adjust the temperature in the room if it is caused by heat. I apply less paint to the canvas than I do with other brands. All this has helped me. Summer I see. Thank you for teaching me so much!
sunshine793Squeeze the paint on to some absorbent paper prior to transfer to your palette.On completion of each painting session lay the painting flat. It should remain in this position for at least a week or until touch dry.You may, in a chronic situation, have to add some neutral absorbent filler such as calcium carbonate to soak up the excess oil.Denis
We have added more leveling to our paint (stand linseed oil), which has allowed us to thicken our consistency quite a bit. Do shake tubes before opening. Also keep in mind that Geneva paints are not formulated to paint thickly (impasto - ish), but rather were made for a more traditional level paint film. Very thick strokes that protrude from the canvas are not recommended. However our newest formula should perform better in this regard.
