With Gamblin FastMatte Alkyd Oil Colors, thin layers will be touch-dry and ready to be painted over in 24-hours. The fast drying rate means painters can stay in the flow of their painting session longer with layering and mark-making possibilities beyond traditional oils. The consistent drying rate of FastMatte colors means painters can return to a dry surface the following day. The matte surface gives colors a deep, soft luster that speaks directly to the viewer. Never before have oil painters been able to create a consistent, matte surface with such ease. The matte surface gives dry paint layers a subtle tooth which beautifully grabs paint from the brush or knife. FastMatte colors are compatible with Gamblin painting mediums and traditional oil colors.
