Chelsea Classical Studio Oil Painting Mediums

Chelsea Classical Studio Oil Painting Mediums are made using only the best natural materials.

These high-quality fine art mediums are meticulously handcrafted using formulas based on historic recipes and techniques. No harsh chemicals are used in their production, so they're safer for artists than other oil painting mediums.

Chelsea Classical Studio Mediums come in glass bottles.

Fat Medium — Designed for use with fat-over-lean oil painting techniques, this handcrafted medium makes oil paints fatter, richer, and glossier. It also helps increase paint film adhesion and decreases drying time for oil colors. Recommended for use in the later stages of painting.

Walnut Oil, Extra Pale Cold-Pressed — Hand-cleaned and purified using traditional methods, CCS Walnut Oil improves the richness and brightness of whites and light oil colors. It dries slower and is less yellow than linseed oil. Certified AP non-toxic.

Lavender Spike Oil Essence — Handcrafted from the finest quality lavender, this safer historic alternative to turpentine and mineral spirits has a distinctive, sweet scent. Use this natural solvent to thin oil painting mediums, resins, and varnishes. It can also be used to blend colored pencils. It's not overly abrasive or streaky, and it evaporates at a similar rate as turpentine.

Lean Medium — Prepared by hand using only the finest ingredients, this archival-quality medium thins oil paints and decreases drying time. The oil in CCS Lean Medium is cold-pressed, purified, and de-yellowed by traditional, natural processes. Lavender gives the medium a strong, sweet smell. Recommended for use in the early layers of your painting.

Sample Set of 8 — Safely and naturally enhance your oil colors and clean brushes with this convenient set. It includes 1 oz bottles of Chelsea Classical Studio Linseed Oil, Walnut Oil, Lean Medium, Fat Medium, Lavender Spike Oil Essence, Lavender Damar Varnish, and Lavender Brush Cleaner, and a 2 oz bar of Lavender and Olive Oil Brush Cleaning Soap.

Linseed Oil, Extra Pale Cold-Pressed — This is the palest and cleanest pure linseed oil available to artists. Washed and filtered to remove impurities, it darkens less and yellows less than other linseed oils. Use CCS Linseed Oil to brighten up your fine oil paintings. This medium greatly improves the acidity and decreases the drying time of oil colors. Made in the USA. Certified AP non-toxic.
