Hi, I've been following this forum for a while, and this is my first post. I normally paint in acrylics, and I prefer them because they have a more fluid consistency than oils, which I find stiff and sticky. So I wanted to ask, why is it that so many seem to have a preference for still oil paints? The consistency of the Geneva ones looks lovely.
Also I have some tubes of Holbein Duo water mixable oils, which come with their water mixable linseed oil. I was thinking of premixing some of the oil to the paint, and store in jars. Can I do that? I see that Mark's recipe for slow dry medium also contains OMS and turpentine, what happens if I don't add these.
