As artists we occasionally need to use our brains. If you use oil paint in your practice you will be familiar with the joys of inhaling distilled gum turps. If you are particularly naughty the odour of supermarket bought turps will be something you are also familiar with, but please, don’t tell us about your bad studio habits. The St. Lukettes are here to let you know that we love your brain and you should too. Langridge combats the history of artists gone mad by bringing you Low Toxic and Non-toxic professional artist materials.
Langridge Low Toxic Solvent
Langridge Low Toxic Solvent is different to other “Odourless” Solvents on the market.
It’s not just deodorised, it’s 84% less toxic. Yes, 84%! Of course it can’t do everything distilled gum turps can do, like dissolve Damar but it can do enough for you to have no excuses against using it in your studio practice. Odourless Solvents may not smell like poison but they are.
Mix Low Toxic Solvent with your paint mediums or clean your brushes. No more headaches. No more awful smells.
