Oil & Alkyd Solvents

by Winsor & Newton

Winsor & Newton offers a choice of solvents for diluting oils and alkyds and for cleaning brushes and equipment.

English Distilled Turpentine is a traditional solvent, with characteristic odor and good wetting properties. Highly refined from essential oil, it is water white, volatile and flammable.

Sansodor is a less toxic, low odor alternative to Turpentine. It’s slow to evaporate, making it highly useful in controlling Griffin Alkyd and oil colors, and has low flammability.

Eva S. from Princeton, NJ says:

I find the distilled turpentine too expensive to clean my brushes, but it is the best as a thinner for oil media. Been using it for decades. Of course, the no-scent is a must.

Rated by: Dorit P. in Poplarville, MS
Tried all kinds, this is the best. Does not evaporate quickly, has no odor, and does a good job cleaning brushes. I put my brushes in pot with this while I continue painting, then I wash brushes with a brush soap.
