W&N Artists' Oil Picture Cleaner
Artists' Picture Cleaner dissolves linseed oil oxidation and cleans soiled oil paintings by removing surface dirt and the damaging products of oxidation. It is a specially formulated natural resin/oil emulsion containing ammonia and designed for cleaning varnished paintings.
When using this cleaner, it is important to shake before and during use. Clean small areas with cotton wool pads and when cleaning is complete, remove any remaining cleaner with distilled turpentine.
Please note, however, that a picture needing to have old varnish removed should be entrusted to a competent picture restorer. Unvarnished paintings may also be treated with Artists' Picture Cleaner but great care is necessary and the process should be stopped immediately if any color appears to be coming off the painting.
Available in a 75ml (2.54 oz.) bottle
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
