Liquin is a durable, non-yellowing medium for thinning oil and alkyd colours, and speeding drying time. Winsor & Newton has extended its popular line of Liquin with a variety of superb, new products.
Liquin Fine Detail — The most fluid of the Liquin family of products, this gloss medium is ideal for fine detailed work, for producing a smooth surface picture, or in smoothly blended areas where brushmarks are not desired. The modern alternative to traditional copal mediums that were based on natural resins and offered fast-drying properties to artists, Fine Detail approximately halves the drying time of oil colour, depending on the proportions added. It is touch-dry in one to five days, depending on the climate, colours used, and film weight. It is not recommended for use as a varnish or final coat.
