Medium W

for water mixability


Liquid medium for mixing oil colours with water instead of turpentine or turpentine substitute. Increases gloss and transparency; harmonizes drying process; odourless. Shake before use. Mix 2 parts of oil colour and 1 part of medium W on a palette, than add water like you want; if necessary add more medium W. Painting tools can be cleaned with water. There is no change of the product quality based on the color change of the raw material alkyd resin. Dosage: 50%.

Thinner: Water




  • Shake well before use.
  • Mix one part medium W with two parts oil paint on your palette; than add water as desired or more medium as needed.
  • Please clean tools like brushes or palettes as soon as possible with water or water and soap.
  • There is one typical property that medium W has in common with commercially available “ready-touse” water-soluble oil paints and many types of acrylic colours. In a yet undried state, oil paints mixed with medium W and water undergo a shift in colour, appearing to be somewhat lighter in hue or even “milky”. (Effect depends on the colour shades of the oil paint involved and the amount of water added: The darker the oil paint and the more water is added, the lighter in hue the wet paint film will appear.)
  • Close immediately after use.
  • Store in a cool and dry place.
  • Individual pre-tests are required .
