Using Liquin

by Dave Robins

To add just the right ammout of liquin to your paint without contaminating the remainder, get a syringe, the type that come with ink jet refill kits, as hey have a blunt needle. You can then fill the syringe from the liquin bottle, squeeze the correct / required ammout of liquin into your raw paint on your palette. The remaining liquin stays fresh in the syringe ready for use the next time you need it, if you put the protective cap back on ;-)

Add a small amount of Liquin to the colors, Blend with a palette knife. Thin the paint with a small amount of odorless mineral spirits if necessary. Apply the first layer of paint with a brush to a canvas or other primed painting surface. Allow the paint to dry overnight. Thanks.

Notably, it is used to speed the drying time in oil painting, though it may also be used as a barrier layer to achieve some effects. Painted over the top of etchings, Indian-ink drawings and other line art, it enables the application of colours by tinting with thin glazes of oil paint.
