Impasto and Oleopasto Liquin Mediums

Impasto and Oleopasto are two mediums for oil paint that will accelerate the drying time of your work and provide extra body to your paint. Both add rigidity and therefore allow for strong mark-making and textures. You can create very thick areas of paint with these mediums which will not shrink or collapse as it dries, and you avoid wasting lovely pigments just to build up body. The only difference between the two is that Impasto dries with a slight gloss and Oleopasto dries to a matt finish.
