A fast-drying, pale oil made from poppy seeds which is well suited for whites and pale colours.
• Reduces consistency
• Increases gloss & transparency
• Resists yellowing
Poppy Oil is classed as a semi drying oil (linseed is a drying oil). Semi drying oils are paler than linseed but dry more slowly. Poppy oil is supplied as Drying Poppy Oil, which has added driers to it. This provides a pale medium for use with whites and blues but with a comparable drying rate to linseed to help avoid cracking.
It has the same product characteristics as Bleached Linseed Oil i.e. it is quick drying and its pale colour. It is also effective in increasing the gloss & transparency of oil colours and is non-yellowing.
