Learn about how to use glazing to improve your oil paintings in this video.

The same applies for acrylic painting, though you would use gloss medium varnish or some other clear fast drying medium to mix your glazes with.

With oils I currently either use walnut oil or alkyd walnut oil medium as a glazing medium.

Thanks all. Lori, yes I'd consider that, if I had more patience. More intensity? Depends on the paints.

Great video...question Richard...in creating the green glaze, would you consider glazing first yellow, let it dry, then blue..pure colors? Would the color optically mix at a greater intensity?
