My Favorite Thing – Lori Putnam

Solvent Free Gel by Gamblin Artist Colors is one of my very favorite things. It is odorless, CLEAR, and thick enough to hold a good heavy paint stroke. It loads well on the brush and I love the way the paint feels when I lay it on the canvas. It is particularly great when using brushes that can support a lot of paint, like extra-long filberts. I began using it while painting in Plein air events to speed the drying time of my paint. Soon I was hooked and use it in my studio work now as well.

    Hello Lori,
    Is the SFGel similar to Liquin? I did the same thing several years ago to develop a thicker medium for plein-air work. Since then, the gel-medium has become a studio staple.
    BTW, congrats on the shortest blog I’ve read yet – direct, informative and to the point. Well done =)
