Use of Oil Paint in the studio at KAGS

Painters in Oil will recall that no solvents, including odourless mineral spirits may be used in the studio. Walnut oil, mineral oil, baby oil may be used. A product such as Gamblin solvent-free gel would be an alternative. All items brought in and/or used with the oil paint must be taken home with you. Brushes should be taken home to be cleaned.
