Re: Oil paint solvent

Rhema, a better solution still is to use the new technology - water mixable oil paints. You can order them online from Art Supply Warehouse, Dick Blick, etc. I have been using the Lukas - Berliner line from the Art Supply Warehouse and big studio tubes are about $10 US each and absolutley love them. The paint is real nice and lasting as well and cleans up with water. You use a little water as your medium - therefore no solvents at all - ever! If you want a little more shine to the finished painting, give it a spray varnish after it has thoroughly dried. Happy painting!!!!!
