Welcome to dickblick
All solvents vary in strength and in their capacity to "loosen up" the body of the color, but the solvent with the greatest power is Distilled Turpentine — the only solvent capable of easily dissolving Dammar resin. Distilled Turpentine makes a viscous mixture. It evaporates slowly, and is the most hazardous and strongest-smelling solvent commonly used by artists. Keep the bottle tightly closed and away from light to prevent oxidation. Do not use Distilled Turpentine if it has thickened.
Turpentine is flammable and toxic. Use only in a well ventilated area.

Excellent product for my studio
from Houston, TX
My studio is not weather conditioned and temps can get extremely hot or very cold- and always humid. I need a solvent that will tolerate extremes without changing the quality of the color of my paints. This does the job perfectly. I use a workable varnish as I complete a work to refresh the depth of color as this product dries to a nice matte.

If your thing is painting in thin washes of oil so you can create a deep layered color field, then Winsor & Newton's distilled turpentine is simply awesome!
The Best over a lifetime
from Rock Hill, SC
Wonderful, clean and pure turpentine for quality oil painting techniques!
I really like using this to thin my paints. If I desire a very fluid consistency, I use it with walnut oil at various strengths. I like it much better than odourless mineral spirits, which just don't cut it like this stuff. It should be noted, that I find this is very fast evaporating - could be a good or bad thing depending on what one desire Unfortunately, it does make me feel sick if I use a lot, even with a very good ventilation system.
Winsor & Newton distiller Turpentine
By S Ann W
I am a porcelain art teacher and for certain procedures you need fresh clear turpentine of high quality and this one meets those specifications. This offer from Blick is far more affordable than it is at the local art store. A further consideration is the odor, the clear distilled turpentine is not as odorous as the cheaper, lower quality ones.
Rank odor, cheap, hardware store variety tupentine. Disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Simply the Best

This is the only brand of turpentine I use. It has a pleasing and aromatic fragrance and I use it to formulate my own traditional oil mediums and varnishes. I highly recommend it.

I WOULDN'T USE ANYTHING ELSE
By Happy Camper
from Boston, MA
I have been using this turpentine for 46 yrs. Some of my oldest paintings are still bright and protected. I don't seem to have to worry about the UV rays. I clean my brushes with it also. I try to keep the same brand with all my oils. Now that the cost has gone up and it not being very available in the stores, I use a turpenoid to clean my pallette. Put a fan in your window keep it going as long as the painting is drying and there you have no problems. Goodluck, Happy Camper

The bottle comes in a protective cardboard box. The quality is clearly very good. Avoid overexposure to fumes by being by open window, setting up a small exhaust fan in the window, opening other doors and windows for cross ventilation.
