Leana unfortunately I am not an expert at all the different types of oils and mediums, so am not in a position to give you any advice regarding the stand oil, sorry  :-\

Am I allowed to put any paintings I paint from these tutorials in my own Facebook photo album? and if I do, are there any particular rules to abide by...aside from the obvious one not to sell etc? I'm new to all this.

Hi Katie, I don't use facebook, but I do belong to another art site where I post all my work and get feedback. When I post a painting from the courses here, I always make a point of stating that it is either from a lesson at www.paintbasket.com, or design is courtesy of Dennis or Nolan Clark, or Paintbasket as the case may be. Always best to give credit where credit is due, and protect their copyright.  O0
After all, if you had worked hard on a design, you wouldn't want someone else using it as their own. :)

Hope this is helpful to you.  :wave:

of course you can post your class paintings on your facebook profile. A credit / link to the class / website would be highly appreciated though  :flowers:

After I finish painting, what should I use to varnish my painting. I do not like liquind misspelled. . I find it does not last over time. I use linseed oil as my medium.

thanks.

I use a retouchable varnish to protect until the painting is thoroughly dry (about 6 months!) and then I spray with Grumbacher spray on varnish - haven't really developed a desire to use the brush on varieties...

Dear Suzen;
I use Krylon products (Sprays)   The Krylon Gallery Series work very well.   They also, have a Quick dry
for oil painting.   I use it while the painting progressing, or between layers.  For the final Varnishing I use their
Gallery Series "Conservation" varnish in the 1370 Matte finish.   I think this also comes in clear, or gloss.
Krylon makes many products for artists.  Check it out on the web.   :gl2:

I use the varnishes of the brand I'm painting with.
When a painting is finished, I protect it with retouch varnish and when the painting is completely dry, I use a final varnish that's matte.

Germa;
Germa is right on!  Suzen give the painting plenty of time to dry before varnishing.  Nolan suggests up to a
year.   This depends on your areas humility levels.  You decide.   :gl:

Good point Mea, and don't forget the drying time depends of how thick the painted layers are. ;)
