What is Zest-it Oil Paint Dilutant and Brush Cleaner? The simple answer is, it's a more environmentally friendly, non-flammable, pleasant to use, inherently biodegradable alternative to 'turps' and white spirit, made using the zest of citrus fruit for cleaning brushes and thinning paint, a much safer solvent for studio use.
A slow drying, gloss medium which is ideal for fine detail work, glazing and smoothly blended areas with no brush marks. Reduces consistency & improves flow. Suitable for oiling out & enriching dull patches. Resistant to yellowing.
Essential to the Bob Ross Wet-on-Wet Technique®. These basecoats allow us to actually blend and mix colours right on the canvas rather than working ourselves to death on the palette. Can also be used to thin other colours for application over thicker paints. The idea that a thin paint will stick to a thick paint is the basis for this entire technique.
