168 Using oil mediums

In this video I talk about the reasons to use mediums such as Maroger medium and how they work as a paint additive and on the canvas as a couch (French for coating). Traditionally academic painters would oil up the canvas–add a layer of medium over a dry layer–to have a thin layer to paint into as if they were painting wet-into-wet.

I also talk about my Gbox video about making a Maroger medium substitute that is easy to make and fun to use. Watch the Gbox movie here.
