I’ve been a Neo Megilp fan since taking Elizabeth’s last class. I find it pretty amazing stuff!! Alisann Smookler April 7, 2020 at 11:04 amLog in to Reply I like the review of each product. I have a better understanding of each. Thank you. There are a lot of shadows in the video, so not real easy to see on the screen. Lighting should be adjusted to properly show the examples.

We will try do better Heather Hawley April 20, 2020 at 10:57 amLog in to Reply Thanks so much for the great review! I just signed up for a free membership and will be checking out your paid memberships shortly – your program looks terrific! I love Gamblin products and have small sizes of all the mediums you reviewed as well as the solvent-free gel. I just finished building a house and moving so have not been painting for several months but am keen to try out the solvents (the only one I have really tried is the gel). I LOVE the Gamsol and it is the only solvent I have in my studio. Are these mediums all equivalent in terms of their “fat” qualities? In other words, can you use any of them throughout the various stages of the painting, and can you use different ones on an interchangeable basis at any point in the painting process? Thanks! Elizabeth Robbins April 20, 2020 at 11:01 amLog in to Reply Heather, We are so glad you enjoyed it. All Gamblin products are compatible with one another. The solvent free gel however can only be used at a 25% ratio to paint. It is recommended however to stick with one medium throughout the painting. I hope that helps and have fun decorating your new home. Heather Hawley April 20, 2020 at 2:41 pmLog in to Reply Thanks for the quick response! Karen Meredith June 8, 2020 at 12:05 pmLog in to Reply Do you both varnish your paintings or does it depend on how shiny and/or even-colored it already is, based upon medium used? Do you ever add Gamsol to the neomeglip in the container itself to make it flow more easily, or just on the palette, as shown in this video? At what point do you decide to use the neomeglip when making brushstrokes? I know at least when the paint needs a better flow consistency….but in other cases as well? Thanks for all this!

I find it gets really sticky Leave A Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
