Anabella,

I am not certain exactly what you mean, but can you remove the paint from the spot that is not right, then repaint it?  Or can you put a light glaze over the spot without removing the underlayer?

Can you post a photo so that we can offer better help?

Hi Nolan,
  What brand of oils do you prefer to use.  Which brand did you use to paint the kitchen spoons?

Also, what brand of medium do you use ?  (again, the spoons painting)

Thanks for your time,
  Carolyn Barnes I

I don't have a preferred oil paint brand and usually just buy what is available. As a result I have a variety of brands in my box.

The medium I use is one that Dennis makes

By adding Liquin Original from W&N to your paint, and leave the painting in a warm dry environment if possible.

Adding oil does the opposite, it increases the curing time.

If it's summertime where you are; park a vehicle in the sun with the windows closed and put the painting on the dashboard for a couple of days.
The time it (a work) takes is the time it takes.

There is that, yes.  I'm aware folks in Winnipeg call it 'Winter Peg'.  Yikes!  I wouldn't have any movement in my hands at the temperatures they get.

Hi nolan and all oil artist,
I watch my first oil video lesson yesterday or rather part 1 of it. First of all i must say i am no too sure about oils, the fact thst they take upto 6 months to dry and the migraine causing diluting mediums, so i might be predudice about them. However, plse can you only dorb with oil? Why can't you paint normally? Why big globs of paint?
Just asking!

I have some windsor and newton oil sticks which say they are oil paint mixed with a littke wax. I am consider using these with a brush and painting normally, to me the advantage of the oil stick is personally, I could use them as paint without the noxious smells. I have watched artist daub with these sticks also and stared in amazement at the mess they have created not only on the canvas but on themselves! Infact, 1 youtube video may me think of kindergarten 2 year olds, infact that is probably an insult to the 2 years olds. Who could do a far better job! Sorry but i don't understand!
Tske care

Hi Abbietaya,

I don't understand your post.  What do you mean by painting normally?  Which video are you referring to?

I think every artist is attracted to a preferred medium for various reasons, people prefer acrylic because it dries fast and errors are easy to cover up, others to oil because it dries slow and you can have long painting session, then again some love watercolour for their lack of mess and ease to travel with, etc. etc.

Perhaps acrylics, if you are concerned about the volatile solvant.

What I have learned is that you only come to appreciate the true values of a medium after you have master some of the basic, so a few lessons.  I know, I used to think that watercolour was an impossible medium.  It was a lot of effort to try it, but know I love it and it is my favorite medium when I travel or have only an hour available.  For longer in house session I prefer  the long open time of oil.

Find your medium and have fun painting.

P.S.  The oil sticks are great for encaustic mixed-media

Hi annie,

Sorry if i offended !
When i say paint normally i mean brush the paint not daub and blob.. its true i personally don't care for oils they are toxic in my opinion. But the oil sticks allow brush painting without the mediums though some medium can be used to thin them.. i am going to play with them in the same way i play with the water colour pastels.  They will last a long time that way.. the video was on youtube and personally i found disgraceful,  it it was a person i don't know , i came across it when looking at the paint pouring method. Which is acrylic but this video popped up and to say the person had more paint on themselves than the canvas isn't an exaggeration. I watched a  lesson by Nolan just part one so far and notice he too daubed the paint and i began to wonder if this is how oils are meant to be used... i guess its going to be a medium i will never understand nor i feel grow to love. Thanks anyway.
 :thankyou: :smitten: :painting:

Hi Abbie

You can paint in many different styles using oil paint, that is what makes it popular.

I suggest you watch one or two more of my oil classes to see various techniques before you decide O0
