Hi Thomas, I like to thank you for this information of mixing your medium.
I really enjoy your paintings.

Hi Thomas, I noticed you do not include "liquin" in your medium, is it not advisable to include it? I am making my own medium where it was included, does it not speed up drying process? My apologies for my ignorance.

Hi Steinunn, thank you and sorry for overlooking your first comment.
The painting medium discribed here (from Carol Marines Blog) does include Liquin, a mineral spirit. I do not use liquin but terpin from Schmincke instead. Simply because of availibility. I had a discussion whether Liquin/Terpin are minerals spirits and looked it up. They are and they do speed up the drying process.
