Tri-Art manufacturing is excited to announce the latest addition to their always innovative line of oils and mediums. D-limonene, aptly described as nature’s solvent, is a safe substitute for harsh chemical thinners. Made entirely of orange rind extract, D-limonene mimics the cleaning power of turpentine and acetone but doesn’t mimic their harsh chemical odour. D-limonene is a natural cleaning product that will leave nothing on your valuable art equipment but the faint smell of oranges.
Alkali Refined Linseed Oil
Tri-Art’s Alkali Refined Linseed Oil is a very pure, highly refined artist quality linseed oil. It provides an ideal grinding vehicle for artists wishing to make their own oil paints from dry pigments. Tri-Art's Alkali Refined Linseed Oil can be used to reduce oil colour viscosity as well as extending the drying time. Using Alkali Refined Linseed Oil will increase the gloss and transparency of oil colours.
Tri-Art’s Stand Oil is a purified polymerized linseed oil. This product has a superior resistance to yellowing and darkening than traditional linseed oil making it the ideal oil painting medium. This oil is made by heating refined linseed oil in a vacuum, allowing it to partially polymerize without oxidization. As a result, it produces a tougher film than linseed oil while maintaining a high degree of flexibility. Tri-Art’s Stand Oil is paler in colour and has a greater viscosity than linseed oil and will also serve to increase the flow and open time of oil paints.
Tri-Art’s Safflower Oil replaces poppyseed oil in traditional formulations. This oil medium yellows significantly less than linseed oil making it the oil of choice for grinding and mixing with whites and light colours. While having similar handling properties in application to linseed oil, Tri-Art’s Safflower Oil is much lighter in colour and will dry considerably more slowly.
Tri-Art’s Alkyd Medium is a semi synthetic polymer which significantly accelerates the drying time of oil colours. It can be mixed in any ratio to dilute and extend colors and is the ideal medium for creating luminous transparent glazes. Alkyd Medium dries to a tough yet flexible film, reinforces the coat's adherence and is virtually non-yellowing.
Orange Scented Thinner
Tri-Art’s Orange Scented Thinner is a very mild, pure mineral spirit with a light orange fragrance which can be used for thinning oil paints and mediums and for cleaning brushes and painting tools. This solvent produces minimal fumes compared to turpentine and other strong solvents, making it less harmful and more pleasant to work with. Good ventilation is recommended with the use of this product.
Tri-Art’s Odourless solvent is a virtually scent-free, mild, pure mineral spirit. It is ideally suited to thinning oil colours and cleaning paint tools. Good ventilation is recommended with the use of this product.
Liquid White Oil
Tri-Art’s Liquid White Oil is a pourable yet highly pigmented white oil paint designed primarily for wet on wet painting techniques. It is composed of the highest grade titanium pigment dispersed into pure, alkali refined safflower oil. It will not settle or separate when stored, however a gentle shake before use is always recommended. This product is a permanent oil colour.
Tri-Art’s Cobalt Drier accelerates the drying time of oil paints and oil mediums. This product is very potent and should be used sparingly. It is strongly recommended that the artist experiment to find the minimum amount necessary to achieve the desired rate of drying as overuse of this product can lead to premature aging of paintings.
