Well if you add a little white to the color it will remove the shine but that also changes the color and it is not something I would want to do.

Personally I love the shine of adding oil. I use Walnut Alkyd medium and it speeds up drying considerably. I also have added Walnut Oil and it extends drying time till eternity.

Thank you Terry for the quick respond.
To be hones, I don't dislike the shine. I am an abstract Expressionist... and in a large painting, I thought to reduce the shine a bit. I do like the Medium and I like what it does to the paint. I don't mind the shine on a small (12x12--18x18 and even 24x24). But on large works like 48x60 or 74/60 the shine gets bit to much for my test. I just thought if someone has more experience in using Oil Mediums can suggest something. I am going to expermint on this a bit and I get some results, I will post it.

Thanks again Terry
best
