Can an old piece of canvas be underpainted with Liquin to stop it drinking in the oil paint?

Thank you Jon, I always tend to use liquin inside and outside, I was just wondering if there is another better medium to use.
Glad to be able to help (I hope!).
Liquin, I believe, is an alkyd medium - to my way of thinking it transforms oil paint into alkyd paint - which is sort of more like acrylic but still with oil/OMS and not water. I find that, with Liquin, my paintings are dry within 24 hours - but I also feel it tends to lead me to handle oils in a less alla prima manner - so I'm hoping to cut down on my use of it...
Thank you for that Jon.
From my experience - no problem - no need to go too thick though!
