"The Champagne of Oil Mediums"

Introducing SOMA - 100% Organic, Hand-crafted Oil Painting Mediums - to speed or slow drying, increase luminosity, richness and glow. These mediums are unsurpassed in quality and bring an indescribable radiance to oil paintings.

1. Liquid Gold Hemp Seed Oil • 4oz.
Perfect for mixing with dry pigments to make oil paint or as a separate medium. Feels and behaves like walnut or poppy oil, with a silky consistency under the brush. It is very clear and bright, and won’t yellow nearly as much as linseed oils. It adds fluidity to oil paints and is particularly beneficial to use with white and light colored paints. A slower drying oil, it is also ideal for mixing with pigments to make oil paint.
Gently hand-refined and sun bleached in small batches.

2Hemp Seed Stand Oil Medium (aged 5 years) - 4 oz.
A truly natural fast drying medium. Viscous, hand-refined, fast-drying organic hemp seed oil painting medium.

Traditional Stand Oil is mixed with the Liquid Gold Hemp Seed Oil to make an extremely versatile painting and glazing medium. This Hemp Seed Stand Oil Medium glides off the brush while imparting gloss and optical luminosity. A very rare painting medium, it is available in extremely limited quantities, as the true stand oil process can not be rushed.

This medium has been aged (oxygenated & pre-polymerized) for 5 years. Unlike modern commercial slow-drying ‘stand oils’ which become thick due to boiling in absence of oxygen, our traditional stand oil is hand-refined and left to “stand” for 5 years, acquiring an extremely heavy viscosity, with the added attribute of being a rapid drying oil. 
Can be thinned with Eco-solve for early lean layers in indirect techniques, used as the basis for glazing mediums or added directly to oils for alla prima approaches. Not designed for mixing with dry pigment.

3. Sun Thickened Linseed Oil • 4oz.
Medium viscosity, fast drying, organic linseed oil, hand-refined and exposed to Colorado sunshine. When mixed with oil paints, will dry to the touch in 1-3 days.
Our organic, hand-refined version of a classic painting medium used for centuries in traditional painting methods.

Perfect as a basis for glazing mediums, this thickened, pre-polymerized oil imparts gloss, luminosity, high film strength and rapid-drying properties, reducing the need for added resins in 3-part mediums. 
Can be added directly to oil paints in small quantities, or used in combination with Eco-solve to create a spectrum of lean to fat mixtures for extended, layered techniques. Sun Thickened Linseed Oil can also be used alone or in 3 part mixtures as the oil component in egg tempera emulsions, bringing its inherent binding strength into delicate, translucent alternating layers of oil & water-phase tempera. Facilitates seamless transitions and luminous veils in semi-transparent painting, while deepening and enhancing colors. Mix 1:1 with Eco-solve for an excellent painting medium. Not designed for mixing with dry pigment. Can be used to "oil out" dried lower layers and paint into wet oil. Can be used as a pre-varnish.
