Although i bought and received Geneva oil paint.
I also bought all the ingredients Mark suggested to mix my own medium as i still have a lot of oil tubes,
Windsor newton and Old Holland brands and i wish to use them as well.
I want to use Mark's supply list, but my question is what is the size of "part"
I have a tubes of 37ml and 60ml paints.
When Mark writes "parts" what is it compared to.
What should be the size of each "part" when i wish to prepare a whole tube of 37ml or 60ml ?
- 10 parts odorless mineral spirits (any artist-grade odorless mineral spirits will do)
- 5 parts stand oil or linseed stand oil (this is viscous like honey and is not the same as refined linseed oil)
- 1 part refined linseed oil
- 5 parts Venice turpentine *
- 2 parts oil of cloves †
Can anyone clarify this for me?
Thanks a lot,
