Folk Art > Paints > Matisse Mediums : MM17 Oil Antiquing Medium


MM17 Oil Antiquing Medium
Price: $14.90
Description: To be used with artist oil paint for antiquing effects over acrylic painting, especially folk art techniques.

CAUTION: This product contains petroleum distillates and is highly combustible. Do not use near heat or open fire. Clean-up should be done with turps.

Directions for antiquing with MM17 Oil Antiquing Medium (Patina):
  1. Clean project of all dust, grease and oil.
  2. Moisten your product all over with a cotton cloth soaked in MM17 Oil Antiquing Medium to prevent the surface from absorbing too much colour.
  3. Dab burnt umber or raw umber artists oil paint on the moistened cloth and spread over your project beginning at the outside edge and moving into the centre.
  4. Wipe back excess colour to desired effect with a clean cloth.
  5. If you have made your item too dark, apply MM17 Oil Antiquing Medium to a clean cloth and wipe over to remove colour.
  6. Allow antiquing to dry at least 24 - 48 hours, depending on the weather and how heavily the project was antiqued.
(ed) I find it best to apply a coat of MM18 Pre-Antiquing Medium before antiquing to create a layer between the acrylic and the oil so as not to move any of the under-painting.

WARNING: Rags soaked in MM17 Oil Antiquing Medium may auto–combust (burst into flames) if left piled up on top of each other. Spread them out, preferably on concrete or grass, or another cool, non-combustible surface.
