Welcome to dickblick
This special medium was developed to provide a non-toxic, environmentally responsible alternative to solvent based, rapid drying alkyd mediums. It closely resembles combinations of sun-thickened oil and natural resins used throughout the history of art, but with the advantage of being solvent-free.

Very good medium but it drys oils quickly
Comments about M. Graham Walnut Alkyd Medium:
I used to use Liquin but thought that I would try this and it certainly retains the wet look of the colors, after drying. Very good product and great price from Dick Blick.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Dries quickly, but adds some weird drag to your paint
from Dallas TX
It DOES speed up drying time, usually overnight for dark colors with thin layers. However, it's like painting with pancake syrup. Sticky, adds a weird drag to the paint so it doesn't go on smoothly.

Learning to paint in the way that Arletta Pech uses her mediums and cleaners. Nice to have something good for both me and the environment.

the best medium for oil
from Corvallis, OR
Ready-made, no odor, solvent-free, non toxic, fast drying, imparts a nice sheen. Great for glazes. It is flammable, though.
Feeling healthy with walnut alkyd medium
By Ama T.
from Paonia, CO
I'm really glad to have gotten this stuff. It makes me feel good about oil painting with minimal chemicals as M. Graham says the medium itself is food safe. Glossy if used a lot, and not extremely cheap, but I do think it's the best medium out on the market right now, because it doesn't have safflower oil or solvent. Feels good to paint with and has good drying time. Good healthy alternative to helping us stay safe and healthy and keep doing that oil painting we love so much!
The goal is not making an art, It is living a life.
I use your products mainly for different types of works such as oil painting , drawing etc. Your products always encourage me to concentrate in my work and i get better output.The main advantage is paints are of high quality. I get maximum satisfaction when I use your products.One of the main limitations is you dont have international shipping. It is difficult to get your products from USA to Bahrain where I live.

I was using this primarily as a medium in place of linseed oil, then I tried clearing my brushes with it. It gets so much paint out of the brushes that I didn't know was left in them!
