Venice turpentine thickness

I'm afraid that my Venice turpentine is too thick.

I bought Venice turpentine 1,5 year ago, at the start it was thick but liquid (like honey), now it's almost solid, I can turn the jar upside down and nothing moves. When I warm it in wather bath it becomes more luiquid. Can I still use it to make slow-dry medium? Will it dissolve when mixed with other ingredients?

    Yes, to all those questions. VT is a natural resin from the larch tree. It will progressively harden when exposed to the air, as some of the more volatile terpenes evaporate. Make sure you have dark airtight storage. Adjust temperature to manipulate viscosity.
