Understanding Turpentine substitutes and Turpenoid in oil painting
As a cheap DIY solvent, Turpentine Substitute should not be used with oil paint because it can discolour the oil paint and lead to become non-drying. This type of solvent would only be useful for cleaning artists’ brushes. Using Turpentine substitute or cheap DIY solvents often result in tacky paint films and the sinking of oil colour.
If you are familiar with Turpenoid, the nearest equivalent to this in the Winsor & Newton range is Distilled Turpentine.
