Gamsol is the safest solvent that allows artists to work in traditional and contemporary techniques without compromise.

Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors, Gamsol Mineral Spirits, 33.8 fl.oz/1 L bottle.

Primary Uses for Gamsol:

  • Thinning oil colors. A little goes a long way; stiff oil colors relax immediately when a little Gamsol is added. Be careful not to thin oil colors too much with solvent alone, this can compromise the ability of the paint to form a paint film.
  • Modifying painting mediums. Note: Gamsol should not be added to painting mediums made with natural resins (dammar, copal, mastic). They require strong solvents such as turpentine.
  • Studio clean-up: brushes, palettes, palette knives, etc.

How does Gamsol achieve this level of performance and safety? Most solvents available to artists come from the industrial paint industry where solvent power and cheapness is prized. Gamsol is special: it is made for products and processes that come into more intimate contact with the body such as cosmetics, hand cleaners, and cleaning food service equipment.  Gamsol is a petroleum distillate but all the aromatic solvents have been refined out of it, less than .005% remains. Aromatic solvents are the most harmful types of petroleum solvents.

DANGER! Combustible, harmful or fatal if swallowed, vapor harmful.  CONTAINS: petroleum distillates.  PRECAUTIONS: Do not ingest.  Do not store or use near heat or flame. Use only with adequate ventilation.  KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
