Bleached Linseed Oil - Made from cold pressed linseed oil that is then bleached. It enhances flow and increases the gloss lengthening the over drying time of the oil paint. Less susceptible to yellowing than conventional linseed oil, Old Holland Bleached Linseed Oil may be diluted with turpentine and white spirit.
Cold Pressed Windmill Linseed Oil - This cold pressed oil is made from linseeds that have been pressed in a windmill. It enhances the gloss and flow of oil paint, lengthens drying time, and allows brushstrokes to be removed. It can be diluted using turpentine and white spirit.
Dammar Picture Varnish - Protect your painting with Old Holland Dammar Varnish. Made from clear dammar resin dissolved in turpentine. Produces a high, even gloss but will yellow somewhat over time.
