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.
Note—Due to mixed stock, sizes may vary slightly.

Does not affect my asthma! :)
By SL Brown
from Land of Enchantment
Comments about Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits:
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! :)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Will buy again
from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
Used with a stencil brush to blend colored pencils. Works very well, no odor at all. Works just as well as mineral spirits without the toxic odor.
"Love It". No smell, works great.

What is great about the product is a little goes a long way and it has no smell. My husband is amazed. I would not sue anything else. I oil paint and it is a great cleaner for oils.

Art's Most Perfect Gift
from Waianae, Hawaii
I was using colorless blending pencils for my work and chewed through 2 pencils in less that 2 weeks. Once I received my bottle of Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits I wondered where it had been all of m artistic life. I will never use a blending pencil again. This product does not ruin paper of any kind, it is completely odorless, as stated, and used with the blending stumps my pictures come out perfect every time. This product is super easy to use and works with most colored pencils even Crayola pencils that the children use.
