I've heard a bit about it... it's like linseed oil? Right?
How do you like it?

It has oil in it but the consistency is like gel, not runny. You apply it directly to the section of the painting you are working on and paint "into" it. It eliminates the need to dilute your paints to achieve better viscosity and brush control. Plus it helps it dry faster so you can complete the painting faster. It also helps immensely with blending.

I actually studied with Ann Schuler for a little in Baltimore. It was a great time!

Thanks so much for all the info... I did find my linseed oil to be VERY runny while I painted some parts.
I really love trying out different techniques... so I saw some expensive brands and stuff online just now, but I just found a small 5 dollar bottle to try out! I'll let you know how it works for me (although it'll probably take me forever to make time to paint again! haha)

Thank you! I am so busy I rarely get to paint much, but I love it. I am traditionally trained in old master style painting... I love the depth of it. You rarely get to see young people painting in this style any more ;-)
