CCS Lavender Spike Oil Essence is a historically documented alternative to turpentine distilled from lavender. It can fully dissolve resins for varnishes, and mix with paints and mediums. Its distinctive lavender scent does not cause chronic health effects such as those associated with the inhalation of fumes from Turpentine or Petroleum Mineral Spirits.
Gamsol is the safest, cleanest and 100% pure odorless mineral spirit. Gamsol is strong enough to thin oil colors and Gamblin alkyd resin mediums and can be reused until the solvent will no longer clear. Gamsol cannot dissolve damar or other natural resins, and will cloud damar varnish if used as an extender.
An odorless, very volatile, thin and colorless turpentine substitute, Turpenoid has the same painting properties and drying time as turpentine but is free from the strong characteristic turpentine odor. Compatible with oil colors as a painting vehicle, either alone or in mediums. It is also excellent as a solvent or paintbrush cleaner, and for use in removing paint spots from clothing.
One of the most economical odorless thinners we carry. It is a mild, colorless solvent designed for use with all types of oil paint, varnishes and enamels. It can be used for reducing artists' tube paints, for brush cleaning and degreasing and as an accessory cleaner. Odorless paint thinner is especially welcomed by the chemical-sensitive artist or student and teachers in classroom situations.

It is archival, professional artist quality, and works as an excellent brush cleaner and restorer. It does not irritate the skin, does not emit harmful vapors or pollute the water supply. It is soy-based and vegan, and has a subtle, fruity licorice scent. Superb for creating washes, under-paintings, glazes, drip effects, etc.
A medium-strength, general-purpose thinner and mild solvent. It is a combination of highly purified cosmetics-grade hydrocarbons and natural essential oils. Use for thinning and clean-up of oil-based products, resins, tars, gums, varnishes and waxes. It may also be used as a volatile medium with most conventional oil-based paint products including fine artist's oil paints. It dries slower than turpentine, keeping the paint workable for a longer period of time. Flashpoint greater than 142° F and OEL > 300 ppm.
Natural Orange Terpene Solvent is a potent solvent that can be a full-fledged substitute for turpentine, since it dissolves damar resin solids, hardened paint, etc. It is free of aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons. However, like many natural essential oils, it can have a sensitizing effect on sensitive artists if it is used too liberally. Therefore it should be used only in well-ventilated areas for those tasks where its use is unavoidable. Mixable with other Eco-House solvents in any desired ratio.
NeutralThin is a practically odorless general-purpose thinner, brush cleaner and volatile painting medium for oil-based paints and artist paints. It is free of aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons. This hypo-allergenic formula without essential oils has been used successfully by chemically sensitive artists for more than a decade. However, due to the individual uniqueness of allergic reactions, exceptions are possible. Flashpoint greater than 142° F and OEL > 300 ppm.
Spirit of Petroleum is a refined petroleum oil best suited for thinning out colors. It provides a smoothness in application similar to watercolor painting. Highly volatile, it evaporates quickly after drying, leaving a dull matte finish. Ideal for all work from rough sketching and underpainting, to finished professional painting. In a 55ml bottle.
A heavy, thick and resinous liquid, made from European pine trees and used in oil mediums, varnishes and resins. As a medium, it offers transparency and a glossy surface to oil painting. Because it has a characteristic of yellowing with time, it should be used in combination with dry oils like stand oil or volatile oils like turpentine. In a 55ml bottle.
SoyThin Odorless Paint Thinner is an odorless, clear mixture of petroleum distillates and highly refined soy additives. In addition to a stronger thinner with less hazardous vapors than traditional mineral spirit based thinners, SoyThin provides greater dissolving power and blends with most solvent-based artist paints and glazing products. The soy additives are also proven to soften brushes over an extended period of time. This product is permitted to be used in government regulated areas.
For the environmentally conscious, the toxicity potential of this thinner is very low. Having odorless characteristics makes it an excellent choice for indoor use. It can be used for most applications where mineral spirits or paint thinner is recommended.
