I was stumbling through the net yesterday and came across this online store, Ben Franklin. I think they're located in Wisconsin. Anyway, among their inventory of art supplies was a large bottle of water miscable linseed oil medium made by Reeves.


Disclaimers: I've not bought from Ben Franklin before, or used this product. I'm just pointing it out since it's a very good price. That's about half what Blick charges for Artisan linseed oil medium. I've avoided Reeves' paints since they seem to be student grade, but that shouldn't affect their mediums. If anyone has tried this or wants to, I'd be curious how well it works out. If any one has bought things from this place before, I'd also like to hear about that since they have a good selection of stuff.

Hi David. Thank you for sharing the info. I've never used any of the reeves products. They seem to be very popular in craft stores and department stores like Walmart so was wondering if they would be rated further down then even student Grade if their was such a thing. I wouldn't think that linseed oil would be such a complex formulation so I wouldn't have a problem purchasing this product if it was readily available in local stores.

They are basically hobby grade. Worse than student grade. The grades are Hobby, Student, and Professional/Artist grade.

We sell them at work and I only sell them to parents looking for something for their kids, and thats only if said parent is hell bent on oils. I try to get them to get acrylics, tempra or water color instead.
