Our highly refined Turpentine is a traditional choice for diluting oil colors and brush cleaning, with greater wetting properties than mineral spirits. Turpentine is flammable and toxic. Use only in a well ventilated area.
Distilled Turpentine — All solvents vary in strength and in their capacity to "loosen up" the body of the color, but the solvent with the greatest power is Distilled Turpentine — the only solvent capable of easily dissolving Dammar resin. Distilled Turpentine makes a viscous mixture. It evaporates slowly, and is the most hazardous and strongest-smelling solvent commonly used by artists. Keep the bottle tightly closed and away from light to prevent oxidation. Do not use Distilled Turpentine if it has thickened.
