Product Questions and Answers

Is this turpentine or gum turpentine?

- Asked by marilene sawaf on 27-Dec-13
Answer

These two terms are interchangable. Turpentine is made from the liquid from pine trees, hence the name gum turpentine.

This is a great product to use as a solvent for my oil paints and also for brush clean-up. HOWEVER, the packaging for the larger amount leaves much to be desired... when pouring it, it spills everywhere, not a good thing when it comes to turpentine. In the end, I'll probably lose 1/4 to 1/3 of the container after mopping it up. In the future, I'll have to purchase the smaller size which is much easier to pour into my pallete cup. Recommend manufacturer re-think its packaging techniques.

Perfectly fine for use as a component of my painting medium, and for a solvent. I will try it as a base for dissolving Damar crystals next. I am expecting good success.
