Product Description

With Gamblin FastMatte Alkyd Oil Colors, oil painters can take their paintings further, faster than ever before. Thin layers will be touch-dry and ready to be painted over in 24-hours. Colours dry to a matte surface with a beautiful tooth and deep, soft luster. FastMatte colours are compatible with other Gamblin painting mediums and traditional oil colours. The fast drying rate means painters can stay in the flow of their painting session longer with layering and markmaking possibilities beyond traditional oils. The consistent drying rate of FastMatte colours means painters can return to a dry surface the following day. The matte surface gives colours a deep, soft luster that speaks directly to the viewer. Never before have oil painters been able to create a consistent, matte surface with such ease. The matte surface gives dry paint layers a subtle tooth which beautifully grabs paint from the brush or knife. For thinning FastMatte colors, a 50/50 mixture of Galkyd and Gamsol is recommended. This mixture, used in moderation, thins colours without slowing dry-times or significantly increasing gloss. Gamvar Picture Varnish may be applied to saturate colours and impart a uniform satin or gloss surface to your finished work. The 24-hour dry time, matte surface and compatibility make FastMatte colours ideal for underpainting.
