    Oil paint medium question, urgent

    I need to make it to the store in time

    I just started oil painting, and I would like to get a quick drying medium. I was just wondering which medium will dry my oil paints the fastest? I believe they had all winsor and newton products, I don't think they had many other brands.

    My friend said he had some stuff where undercoats would dry in about 30 minutes. That would be cool, I'm not good enough to be a master artist and wait weeks before going back to a painting. Any ideas?

    Fat over lien, and i beleive the object in question is liquin. Which will help your oils dry faster, you could always work on multiple paintings at a time.

    and read this thread by foster.

    You could always go to acrylics if you need a fast drying medium.
