Hello:) I'm Stian from Norway. I'm working on improving my English, please excuse any mistakes. I have a question that maybe you guys can help me with.
The oil paint I'm using is Old Holland and a Swedish brand called Beckers.
I use no solvents at all. When I'm thinning out the paint i just use some drops of cold pressed raw linen oil.
Even though I use no solvents my eyes get irritated and itchy when I paint. When the room is heavily ventilated its no problem. But its pretty cold here in Norway. Sow that's not always a good solution. Maybe I'm allergic to some of the dryers that are added to these oil paints? Or the dryers that are added to the cold pressed raw linen oil? So my main question is: are there any dryers or additives added to the Geneva paint that are known to cause any allergic reaction? If its not. I will buy the Geneva paint To see if that eliminates this problem.
I would be very thankful for any answer
