How to diluate oil paint

The oil paint must be diluted with turpentine (not water) proportionally to the wished result: less for the religious or impressionist art (more oil paint shall be used, higher expenses), more for the pop art to keep a smooth surface (less oil paint shall be used, smaller expenses).

More turpentine is used, easier the process of the painting (the use of the brush) is, and faster the drying is. Thus lower the expenses are.oil2

In order to get shinier pictures, linseed oil shall be added at the dilution to the oil, although the drying takes more time.
