Venetian Medium is based on research that 16th century Venetian painters added powdered glass to their paint. Contains leaded crystal glass powder, pale bodied linseed oil and turpentine, with small amounts of wax and lead.
Use Venetian Medium as a glazing medium that is fast drying and offers the glaze brilliance due to the crystal glass particles. Spread thinly onto the surface and paint directly into it as a couch or add directly to paint nut. Smooths the edges of brush or knife strokes. Venetian Medium is fast setting and dries to a satin finish. Directions Spread thinly onto the surface and paint directly into it or mix directly into paint on the palette to give colours a flowing consistency that holds brush strokes yet dries to a satin finish. Use to “oil out” or as a painting couch by rubbing a thin layer onto completely dried paint. Gives paint a longer, flowing consistency.

Long paint is also described as being a "ropy" and refers to a stringy quality, like that of honey. Paint that behaves in this way is said to have long rheology. Short rheology refers to paint that exhibits a more buttery consistency, typical of most commercial oil paint. Rheology is the study of how substances flow, such as liquids and soft solids that flow rather than deform elastically.
