Welcome to dickblick
Liquin is a durable, non-yellowing medium for thinning oil and alkyd colors, and speeding drying time. Winsor & Newton has extended its popular line of Liquin with a variety of superb, new products.
Liquin Fine Detail
The most fluid of the Liquin family of products, this gloss medium is ideal for fine detailed work, for producing a smooth surface picture, or in smoothly blended areas where brushmarks are not desired. The modern alternative to traditional copal mediums that were based on natural resins and offered fast-drying properties to artists, Fine Detail approximately halves the drying time of oil color, depending on the proportions added. It is touch-dry in one to five days, depending on the climate, colors used, and film weight. It is not recommended for use as a varnish or final coat.
This is a semi-gloss, quick-drying, non-yellowing impasto medium that retains crisp textures and brush strokes without any visible leveling. It also extends tube color, provides bulk, and allows more blending time. When dry, it forms a flexible, tough film that can be varnished in the normal way. Use it for heavier brush work or palette knives. It is not recommended for use as a varnish or final coat.
Liquin Light Gel
This Liquin formulation is a slight gel that breaks down on brushing (thixotropic) and flows out to give a non-drip effect when mixed with color. It is ideal for glazing, and dries to a gloss film that has an increased resistance to yellowing. Liquin Light Gel offers all the handling properties traditionally seen with the historic Meglip mediums but without the tendencies to crack and yellow that are normally associated with mastic mediums. It is not recommended for use as a varnish or final coat.
A semi-matte, quick-drying medium, Winsor & Newton Liquin Oleopasto has a soft gel consistency with some brush drag, ideal for leveling crisp brushmarks and providing bulk in impasto and texture work. When added to paint, Liquin Oleopasto extends tube color. When dry, it retains knife and brushstrokes and won't level out. It dries to a crack-resistant, virtually non-yellowing film.
This reliable favorite (formerly known simply as "Liquin") is a general-purpose low gloss medium that improves flow and transparency. It mixes easily with the brush or knife, smoothes brushwork, and is also suitable for textured oil techniques. Liquin Original approximately halves the drying time of oil colors, resulting in a drying time of anywhere from one to five days, depending on climate, colors used, and film weight. It is not recommended as a varnish or final coat.

Good texture, nice finish, but fumes
By Glenda B

Comments about Winsor & Newton Liquin Mediums:
I mix Liquin with walnut oil, 1:2, for a painting medium. It's too fume-y to use on its own. I like the texture, the shortened drying time, and the slightly glossy, even finish it leaves. However, I've switched my painting students over to M.Graham walnut oil and alkyd medium, and will change over myself once this bottle and my existing supply of walnut oil are finished. No objections, just one less container and more convenience.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Liquin makes the best fast drying mediums I have used. It doesn't affect color significantly. Flow is smooth. I love it.
from Cheshire, CT
I have lately been doing atmospheric landscapes and the medium makes layering a joy. It is also great for use in portrait painting.

The right ticket for a new artist

I like to use Liquin for glasing wwhen oil painting
Love this medium
from Nashville, TN
This helps the my paints spread evenly over the canvas. It also helps drying time and is great for transparent glazes.
very much like liquin
Every medium has different properties and honestly I like most of them for their specific attributes as different paintings require different mediums
I am a professional artist and use this impasto daily. I love this impasto and have tried many others but nothing else compares in quality and ease of use. Dick Blick is my favorite on line art store due to their pricing, professionalism, and fast shipping.I recently moved and had placed a order with Dick Blick and it went to my old address accidentally. All I had to do was call them and they sent out a new order the next day. I order most of my supplies from Dick Blick and will continue to do so in the future.
