This is a great product to keep your oil paints wet for a long time. It's very viscose however it does have a strong smell. I use this product in conjunction with other ingredients to make a slow dry medium to keep my oil paints wet for days, weeks, months, years! It's part of a formula that painter mark carder uses (carder method) The thing I don't like is this little bigger is expensive for the quantity. You can find it cheaper if you buy it in larger quantities on foreign websites in the UK, etc. but nothing beats fast American shipping!I love it just remember it has a veeeery strong smell and you'll need ventilation.

Awesome product for oil mediums
from Mead wa
This is the real deal right here. This venice turpentine is a wonderful product that will thicken your oil medium without ruining it. I use it adamantly in my mediums and it works phenomenally.. It. Does come in a very thick syrupy consistency so heating up the bottle in a bowl of warm water first is essential.

Exactly what I needed
from Lincoln, NE
I'm an oil painter and I make my own painting medium. Most medium recipes call for damar varnish as an ingredient. If you ever have to remove the varnish from a painting, you'll have problems if your painting layers also contain damar varnish. You can avoid those problems by substituting the damar varnish with venice turpentine. This product adds a great deal of gloss (use less for satin) and dries firm and flexible. I'm a huge fan of this product. It smells great, too.
