Gamsol is an excellent solvent for thinning Gamblin mediums and for general painting. It evaporates 100% and leaves no residue in paint layers.
Gamsol is less toxic than other brands of OMS (Odorless Mineral Spirits), mineral spirits, or turpentine because the harmful aromatic solvent component has been removed. It's also useful for studio and brush cleanup.

Comments about Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits:
As an oil painter and resin artist, Gamsol is it. I've tried everything else out there, this is definitely the best odorless mineral spirit you will find. Non-toxic, no odor... I repeat No. Odor. Definitely a must for any serious artist.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Package arrived with the liquid all over the place. I had to wash the container in the tub and left it there to see if it was cracked. It came in plastic as opposed to most metal containers, and the lid appears to not seal properly. Buyers - be prepared to roll your sleeves up for this one, or seek a product with better packaging!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Always good value

I would purchase again
First using this product. Will be using in an art class. Instructor recommended.
Easy clean up, no odor
from Hamilton, VA
I've used many different kinds of odorless paint thinners, mineral spirits, etc. This one is my favorite and I will not use anything else now. I also like that it comes in a clear bottle now. I have a 32 oz. bottle that I refill from the larger 164 oz. size.
from Moberly MO
This is my go-to solvent as it probably is for many oil painters. What's even better with my most recent purchase is the new translucent plastic container it comes in. No more guessing how much is left in it or how much sludge I've put back into it. And it's much easier ergonomically to pour. Thanks, Gamblin!

Oderless, easy to use and works well
I bought this product to use to blend colored pencils. I am really impressed with its beautiful blending capabilities. I also like that it is oderless. I usually just drop a few drops in a sealed container. Then I work from that. This way I am not exposed to an toxins, and like Lisa from Lachri fine art says safety first. I don't have any problem, using it in this small capacity.

I would never use any other mineral spirit
This product is safe, reliable and well priced. A little goes a long way and although I only use it for brush washing/general studio clean up, and toning the canvas before oil paintings, it does all of those things tremendously. Not much Gamsol actually goes into my paintings (just a thin wash first to tone the canvas). I find that Gamblin's solvent free fluid works better for a medium. For completely solvent free painting, substitute gamsol for turpenoid natural (to clean your brushes) and use gamblins solvent free fluid or gel (i prefer the fluid) as a medium. Gamblin makes good stuff!
