Welcome to dickblick
For hundreds of years the world has marveled at the works of art created by the "Old Masters" during the Renaissance. Not only did their achievements arise from training and talent, but also from the techniques they used in preparing their materials. It wasn’t until the 20th century that some of these formulas were rediscovered.
Grumbacher has continued this tradition in the manufacture of its painting mediums, by assuring that the original paint attributes are enhanced, not compromised, by their use. Oil Painting Medium III dilutes oil color to speed drying time and improve paint flow. Add it directly to the color in small quantities. It's perfect for detail work.

Great for Plein Air painting
By Old Jaguar
Outdoors is allows the paint to stay wet, but also to stay put so you can add layers without picking up the under-painting. Also, since plein air is usually a single session painting event, as you near the final touches you can just use paint thinner so the last layer dries slower than all the rest and there is no cracking or pulling. And, you can vary the viscosity of the paint by thinning the medium itself.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great quick drying medium
from Manteca CA
I take an oil painting class. Carrying wet paintings is an iffy situation as they can get smudged or worse get on your clothes. Using Grumbacher Medium III allows me to paint the day before class with the knowledge that it will be dry to the touch come class time. I use it in class as well although when I paint in class it stays a bit sticky but still better than when using the other Grumbacher mediums. I like all the Grumbacher mediums, but the III just fits my needs right now.
