– What you will need when first starting off –
Both of these brands are favorites of mine because of their buttery consistency and superior ability to be used in a variety of ways. They mix and blend exceptionally well with all oil mediums and can be manipulated in a wide range from Transparent Glazing to Impasto. Their advantage over Student Grade Oils is their high oil content minimum fillers.
Brush Washer & Airtight Chemical Container
I Love this little airtight container for safely storing my Gamsol. I use it to dip my brush in when needing to thin my paint. I also use it at the end of my day as the first step in cleaning my oil brushes.
Any brand will do. I prefer Rosemary & Company because of their superior quality. With good care, they can last you a lifetime.
