Gamblin’s Fast Matte Alkyd Oils were developed by Gamblin, a small, ’boutique’ maker of high quality oils and mediums, for oil painters who wanted to extend their painting time and stay in the ‘zone’ instead of waiting for layers to dry.
Fast Mattes are great for under-painting because they dry within 24 hours, and their matte finish is perfect for accepting subsequent layers. They’re also a great paint for plein aire painting where you need to work fast. As alkyd’s, they have an alcohol component that speeds drying, and are soluble with odorless mineral spirits.
