Mediums for oil colour

The purpose of a medium is to influence one or more properties of the paint and to make the paint suitable for a certain application. Examples include consistency, gloss, flow, drying time, transparency and durability of a paint film. As an underlying (lean) layer absorbs oil from a subsequent layer, a subsequent layer has to contain relatively more oil. Think of the rule, fat over lean.
