    Butterfly88,

    I use a glazing/layering medium of my own invention. It contains no alkyd material, and I make it with traditional ingredients. I use no commercially available painting mediums, primarily because the manufacturers generally avoid putting the ingredients (or proportions) on their labels.

    1 portion Linseed Oil
    1 portion Walnut Oil
    1 portion Venice Turpentine (this is a RESIN, ...Not a "solvent")
    2 portions Oil of Spike Lavender (this is the SOLVENT.)

    Hi Terry. Thank you very much! I appreciate your comments. My method for flowers, and still-lifes is to glaze many layers of color over a very detailed, and complete underpainting of gray (a grisaille).
