Zest-it Clear Painting Medium




Zest-it is an environmentally friendly, non-flammable, non-toxic and bio-degradable alternative to commonly used solvents in oil painting – turpentine and white spirit. Zest-it is a natural solvent made from the zest of citrus fruit with a neutral pH and contains no CFC’s or aromatics.
Clear painting medium is a combination of Zest-it and Linseed Stand Oil. It reduces consistency and enhances the flow of oil paint. Oil colours can be added to the Clear Painting Medium where a coloured ground is required for painting wet-on-wet. Useful for thinning transparent colours when glazing and, as it does not contain varnish, glazes do not ‘yellow’ over time. Dries to a tough plastic film.

Available in: 50ml, 125ml, 250ml and 1L bottles.
