Safe for the Artist & Environment 

Works great with paint and brushes! 

Great for the initial canvas sketch, to clean paint from the palette and other painting accessories, or used in a cup to rinse brushes. It contains no naptha, turpentine, OMS or mineral spirits. Fully compatible with linseed, walnut, safflower, and spike lavender oils. Has no affect on the paint properties with respect to hiding, gloss, adhesion, flexibility and leveling. A small amount improves paint flow and dispersion, leaving a solid paint film. Not just an evaporator, but a true thinner – it will dissolve hardened paint on old brushes and palettes!
