Zest-It Lean Painting Medium'

Zest-It Lean Painting Medium

What is Zest-it Oil Paint Dilutant and Brush Cleaner? It's a more environmentally friendly, non-flammable, pleasant to use, biodegradable alternative to 'turps' and white spirit, made using the zest of citrus fruit for cleaning brushes and thinning paint, a much safer solvent for studio use. Zest-it isn't irritating to the eyes or skin in normal use, yet the Dilutant and Brush Cleaner has an active strength which can effectively clean brushes even after 10 years. It's longer lasting than turpentine or white spirit, is reusable with very little lost to evaporation and can be used to dilute oil paint down to ink consistency without any adverse effect.
