Never buy any liquids in block cans again
By Gladys Kravitz
from Kennett Square, Pennsylvania
I just bought this in the store in Philadelphia, and the product is average, which is good. I will buy it again when it is time to restock, but I don't like the block-can container.My complain is not of just Shiva but of all other makers that sell their artist liquid stored in block-cans. They're awful when you try to pour the medium into another container without spilling. What a waste when it happens. I just bought a block-can of Shiva Rectified Turpentine, and, ARGH, it was frustrating to pour without waste. I used a turkey baster to transfer the turpentine from the block can into a jar for use.I wish ALL makers of artist liquid medium will transition to the bottle shaped container which makes it easy to pour without waste. When I restock again, I will be avoiding the block-cans, and buying only turpentine or any other medium in regular bottle-shaped containers because they are easier and safer to pour.
A Good Product

Best turps out there
By Patrick Bryant Hawley
from Chattanooga, Tennessee
Best turps I've ever used based on odor alone. Mineral spirits have a sickly, bitter stink; standard turpentine is reeking, sour, and acrid. This stuff smells like flowers. I shoot you not; I've been known to splash a little on my hands just to enjoy the fragrance. Consider that it is also a full-strength, non-yellowing solvent, and by god we're in bidness!
Best turpentine around.
from Roanoke, VA
Having used a myriad of other turpentines over the years, I can personally attest to the quality of this product. Never dulls the paint, smells wonderful, does the job.
Needed large volume - great choice
from Fort Worth, TX
This is a very good product in the size I needed. Pleasant aroma. My preference for initial oil painting lay in to establish drawing placement and values. Dries very fast plus using paper towel or cotton swab and the product I can lift out lights and on the Gamblin Oil Primer I use to prepare my canvases the is no staining.
That wonderful smell!
from Southern New Jersey
Just in case you were worried about getting some sour smelling big box turpentine smell stop worrying. This turpentine has that wonderful fresh x-mass tree smell.
