Zellen White Spirits

Zellen White Spirits is a versatile art supply that serves multiple purposes in oil and alkyd painting. Here are the key features and uses of this product:


  1. Volatile and Flammable Diluent: Zellen White Spirits is a volatile and flammable diluent, commonly used for cleaning brushes and thinning oil and alkyd colors.
  2. Brush Cleaning: It is particularly useful for cleaning brushes used with oil and alkyd paints, effectively removing paint residues from the bristles.
  3. Thinning Oil Colors: While it can be used for thinning oil colors, it’s worth noting that specific painting mediums or Artist’s Turpentine may be more suitable for this purpose.
