Hello friends, hope everyone is having a blast during the holidays.
Guys I use a small amount of liquin in my paints as the only medium. I love it but only except a small shortcoming, which is that after about 5 hours the paints get tacky and is not usable. The workaround could be adding a very tiny amount of linseed oil to bring back the flow as there's already linseed oil in the paint anyways. However, that brings another concern of maintaining "fat over lean" coz next day I won't need the linseed oil on liquin on the first 5 hours of painting.
That above lead me to try stand oil which I have a huge attraction for its features like enamel like finish, non-yellowing nature, smoothing out of the brushstrokes. Winsor and Newton make a premixed stand oil medium essentially mixed with solvent and is quite popular, called "Artist's Painting Medium". It would help me a lot if anyone can share their experience using it especially the drying time or the time to get the surface of paint tacky to accept next layer.
