Pros: Glides Smoothly

Primary use: Personal

Was this a gift?: No

I use LeFranc & Bourgeois Oil Of Spike (Essence d'Aspic) as the solvent ingredient in my oil painting medium. Combined with Linseed and Walnut Oils, and Venice Turpentine, it creates one of the most useful glazing mediums I've ever used. The Oil Of Spike is slower drying, and it imparts a slippery consistency to the medium, as well as being a bit more aggressive a solvent than even Turpentine. I have enjoyed using this product for years, and I definitely wish to see it be continued to be offered at your very reasonable price.
