CCS Lean Medium For Oil Painting™ is a mixture of CCS Linseed Oil Pale Cold-Pressed™ and CCS Lavender Spike Oil Essence™. It will thin the paint, make it dry faster, and is recommended for the early layers of painting.

CCS Lavender Spike Oil Essence™ is a historical alternative solvent to turpentine, which is safe to breathe.

The painting method of “Fat Over Lean” means to apply a paint layer rich in oil (a fat) over a layer with less oil (a lean) layer on a painting.  It does NOT refer to paint thickness.

This simple principle is fundamental to controlling the paint adhesion, drying time and glossiness.

To paint Fat over Lean, use less oil to begin with, and more oil and/or varnish on successive painting days.
