Gamblin's contemporary mediums are true to historic working properties, yet safer and more permanent. These painting mediums extend and modify the working properties of oil colors, offering fluid consistency for expressive mark making to a stiff paste for creating thick, crisp marks. Gamblin's mediums broaden the visual qualities of oil color while increasing the transparency of paint layers and creating a range of surface qualities from high gloss to matte.

PVA Sizing (Poly Vinyl Acetate) - Conservation scientists recommend painters use neutral pH PVA size on linen and canvas instead of rabbit skin glue. Diluted with distilled water, PVA provides a good contemporary size that seals the fabric but does not re-absorb atmospheric moisture, swell and shrink like rabbit skin glue does. There are hundreds of different formulas of PVA, which is why Gamblin uses the research of the Canadian Conservation Institute, an organization that helps painters and conservators identify the best PVA to use. Gamblin PVA Size is made from PVA that has a neutral pH, is non yellowing, retains flexibility and does not emit harmful volatiles.
