Zel-kin Liquid Alkyd Resin

Zel-kin Liquid Alkyd Resin is a quick-drying medium formulated as a translucent soft gel. Here are the key features and uses of this product:


  1. Liquid Alkyd Resin: Zel-kin is made from alkyd resin, which is a synthetic resin often used as a binder in oil-based paints. In this liquid form, it serves as a medium to enhance the properties of paints.
  2. Quick Drying: Zel-kin accelerates the drying time of the paint. This can be particularly useful for artists who want to work more quickly or build up layers of paint without waiting for extended periods between applications.
  3. Good Flow Characteristics: The medium has good flow characteristics, helping the paint to spread smoothly and evenly across the surface.
  4. Recommended for Glazing: Zel-kin is recommended for glazing techniques. Glazing involves applying thin layers of translucent color over dry paint layers to create depth, luminosity, and color variations in the artwork.
  5. Resistant to Yellowing: Zel-kin is formulated to be resistant to yellowing over time, helping to maintain the true colors of the artwork as it ages.


Zel-kin Liquid Alkyd Resin offers artists a versatile medium to modify the properties of their paints, especially in oil painting. By accelerating drying time and providing good flow characteristics, it enables artists to work efficiently and achieve specific artistic effects. Its suitability for glazing makes it a valuable tool for artists looking to enhance the depth and luminosity of their oil paintings. As with any art medium, it is essential to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and recommended usage to achieve the best results.
