Eco-House Oil Mediums

Eco-House Inc. is a Canada-based company dedicated to making fine oil painting mediums that meet optimum health, safety, and environmental standards.

In the view of Eco-House, the standards for art materials should be similar to those in the food industry — new or artificial ingredients should be considered unsafe until their long-term safety and archival quality are proven. Thus Eco-House uses only traditional, all-natural ingredients that have stood the test of time, while eliminating overly aggressive solvents and toxic heavy metals from traditional formulations.

Because Eco-House believes that every artist deserves to know exactly what is contained in the art materials they use, it provides a full declaration of all ingredients on every product label.

Caution — Follow safety instructions carefully. Not suitable for use by children. Shipping restrictions apply to hazardous materials.

115 Extra-Mild Citrus Cleaner — This medium-strength, general-purpose thinner and solvent dries more slowly than turpentine, keeping paint workable for a longer period of time. It is not suitable for dissolving hard resins such as dammar or copal.

125 Neutral Thin — This is a general-purpose thinner, degreaser, brush cleaner, and volatile painting medium for oil-based paints. It is clear, odorless, hypoallergenic, and archival.

910 Light Refined Linseed Oil — This very light, purified linseed oil is made without additives. It results in brighter whites and pales when mixed with oil paint.

912 Linseed Stand Oil — This light-colored, pre-polymerized linseed oil adds elasticity and moisture to paints, improving their flow and leveling. It has less of a tendency to yellow than plain linseed oil.

915 Orange Terpene — This archival-quality solvent is made from food-quality ingredients for optimum health and safety. Strong enough to dissolve damar resin solids and hardened paint, it can be used as a substitute for turpentine.

921 Cozica Drier Blend — This aromatic-free blend of cobalt, barium, and zinc octoates speeds up the drying time of linseed oil and stand oil coats.

950 Damar Resin — This high-quality, graded natural resin adds brilliance and luminosity to colors. Clear white crystals are used to make various traditional painting preparations such as varnish and medium. Strain out impurities using Orange Terpene.

952 Damar Varnish — Damar Varnish can be used as a final picture varnish over well-dried oil paintings (after 6-12 months) or as an ingredient for your own medium formulations. It has a semi-gloss finish.

955 Heavy Damar Medium — This medium has a rather heavy consistency resulting in a rich glaze finish. The addition of lead-free driers (cobalt, zirconium, and calcium octoates) reduces the drying time of paints.
