Alkyds can be mixed with any oil paints and oil painting mediums. They will also hasten the drying time of the oils they are mixed with. Generally, they stay workable for 3 to 4 hours and dry in 12 to 18 hours; depending on the thickness of the layer of paint.
You should try these paints! The joy of oil blending and the much faster drying time. What a great combination.
Once you've used the alkyds a few times, you might never to back to oils. But remember, they are mixable with the oils you already have. Give these paints a try. We think you will love them!
