A 'Fat' Medium refers to the 'Fat Over Lean' technique, which means to apply a paint layer rich in oil (a fat) over a layer with less oil (a lean) layer on a painting. This principle is fundamental to controlling the paint adhesion, drying time and glossiness of oil colors. You can read more about this technique here.
