This Clarified Lean Medium by Chelsea Classical Studios is a handmade oil medium that uses lavender spike oil essence, which is a safer alternative to ones made with turpentine. A 'Lean' Medium refers to the 'Fat Over Lean' technique, which means to apply a paint layer rich in oil (fat) over a layer with less oil (lean) on a painting. This simple principle is fundamental to controlling the paint adhesion, drying time and glossiness of oil colors.

This is crafted from a mixture of pure, extra-pale, cold pressed linseed oil and lavender spike oil essence. Even the ingredients in the mediums are handcrafted to ensure the highest quality products. This fine-art quality medium has a light oil content mixed with a varnish, so it will thin the paint, make it dry faster, and is recommended for the early layers of painting.

I've been using lavender oil in my own mediums for a while now and so I decided to give the Chelsea Classical Studio lavender range a try. I used both the lean and the fat mediums just because I tend to always paint in two layers. I've completed a few paintings now and they worked well with no problems. So far I've used them on Claessens polyester, Claessens No.13 DPS oil primed linen and Belle Arti ultra fine cotton and the mediums performed well on all three surfaces.
