Reading further down the board, I think my question was already answered, that Canada Balsam can be used in any amount with oil, but some drying oil should be added to it before using it with oil paint. The essential oil medium already has oil added, so it depends on the artists preference. I saw another response to a post affirming that  the Canada Balsam Essential Oil Medium can be used for oiling out the final layer of a painting. Apologies for asking questions that have already been answered.


I had wondered if the bodied oil would dry well without some unbodied drying oil added, but I noticed that the medium I spilled on the side of the bottle, and on a piece of wood in my studio, has hardened really well.

Can I add too much Canada Balsam essential oil medium? Does the bodied oil keep it from drying properly without the addition of some unbodied linseed oil?
