oil painting

Postby Derexbrown » Thu Jan 19, 2017 6:41 am

The use of transparent vegetable oil to reconcile the paint in the production of cloth, paper, wood and other materials can shape of the art image of the painting. It originated in Europe, and has become an important species of painting in the modern society. It is generally believed that it is the predecessor of the 15th century European tempera painting. In the early 15th century, the Dutch painter Van Eyck is the founder of oil painting techniques.

I don't really understand your comments about using vegetable oil with mixing paint. I have read that baby oil and vegetable oil should never be used as they are non-drying oils. So why would anyone want to have a finished painting that will never dry? Could you clarify your comments?

We wouldn't of considered Vegetable oil for the fact it will go OFF with time and smell. Along with the drying time which means it would smell before its dehydrated. Would Mineral oil be a separate issue.
