Welcome to dickblick
Gamsol is an excellent solvent for thinning Gamblin mediums and for general painting. It evaporates 100% and leaves no residue in paint layers.
Gamsol is less toxic than other brands of OMS (Odorless Mineral Spirits), mineral spirits, or turpentine because the harmful aromatic solvent component has been removed. It's also useful for studio and brush cleanup.

New Gamsol Packaging
from Las Vegas
Comments about Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits:
A couple of days ago while visiting California, I went to a Dick Blick store to replenish some supplies. I bought a large Gamsol in the new plastic bottle. In the 4 hours it took to drive home, about 1/5th of the bottle leaked out on the floor of the car. Bottle is not damaged. Just appears to have a slow leak on its side. Needless to say, I am not thrilled with the new packaging especially since Gamsol is not inexpensive. I love the product, but am now unsure about the new packaging.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used the gamsol oderless spirits this past week in an oil workshop; my asthma forced me to abandon my oil painting a few years ago and I just took a chance on this one occasion. I was so pleased with the gamsol; absolutely no problem for my breathing and it was totally effective in the various uses over the course. The instructor required all of us to use that as our solvent and I am so glad he did.....Many thanks!!!!
Best Odorless Cleaner for Oil Paints.

No fuss, no fumes!
By Early Bird
from Shreveport, La.
This is the ONLY solvent I allow in my studio classroom. Other solvents which say "odorless" on the can or label must have been annointed by people who cannot smell. Gamsol has no nasty fumes to contend with, and even if it is not safer, it sure seems to be! People who got headaches from fumes now do not. Be safe out there!

When using Gamsol I thin out and smooth the lines of my colored pencil drawing's backgrounds. It is especially useful when doing water or solid colored areas.

Does not affect my asthma! :)
By SL Brown
from Land of Enchantment
I was hesitant to try this for far too long. So many things that say "odorless" are not, and will trigger my asthma, but this stuff does not, and I can't smell any odor at all when using it. Gamsol on a Dick Blick blending stump makes my Polychromos colored pencil drawings hit a new dimension! People don't recognize the blended drawings as colored pencil. It also works on Prismacolor, but is less smooth - has an effect a bit like granular watercolor, which is nice too. And it's made in the USA. I am so pleased with Gamsol and will never be without it now! :)

I use for blending colors. I like that it is odorless, and it works quite well for my needs.
