Galkyd Lite is different from Galkyd because it is made from an alkyd resin that has a lower viscosity. The viscosity of Galkyd Lite is very similar to that of a traditional damar/refined linseed oil/turpentine painting medium. Galkyd Lite is also ready to use. Because of its lower viscosity, Galkyd Lite will leave brush strokes in thicker layers. Glazes made with Galkyd Lite look slightly less glossy than those made with traditional mediums or Galkyd. Like Galkyd, Galkyd Lite is formulated to thin oil colors and maintain strong flexible paint films. Besides painters who prefer a lighter painting medium, landscape painters and others who enjoy painting outdoors will appreciate the longer working time of Galkyd Lite (approximately three hours). Thin layers will be ready to paint over within 24 hours. Thins with odorless mineral spirits.
