I use walnut oil sparingly for upper layers of the painting when you need a fatter mixture. Faisal often suggests using a tooth pick to add oil to the mix and I think that is a very good idea. You want to be able to add very small controlled amounts to get to the consistency you want.

I also use the walnut to put a fine film on the gessoed canvas or acrylic under painting to help make the paint flow into the canvas more easily. If you are planning to use a dry brush technique, then don't put the thin film on.

Hi everyone
Thank you for the support - Judy - good tips about walnut oil!

I'm just getting back to painting, will share when i have something!
First I wish to paint over old dried traditional oils( about 4-5 years dry) and I
heard or saw somwhere to put a very thin film of walnut oil on the dry surface and then wipe off - to aid in adhesion of the new WSO's?

anyone know about that?

Thank you all

hmm, not sure if that works. I have never painted over a finished canvas as is. I once scraped off cracked paint (a lesson learned) and painted over that. I just used medium mixed with the paint to ensure it was fat enough. Maybe others can give you their comments.

Do you have a small old one that you could experiment on? Just paint something easy over it. I would use the thin film of walnut oil over the old one first. Just paint on some of the oil and then use a paper towel or soft cloth to gently wipe off most of it so there is a thin glaze without any puddles....I hope that makes sense.
