I used to hear of someone using acrylic clear self-leveling gel to seal oil pastels

Also, if you're tempted to fuck around with Toluene, please don't. Please, it will give you an experience, but homeless folks have been found quite alone and dead with the solvent in their system. Also let's say I know someone who's suffering with effects that have popped up years later after using.

With this out the way, I have completely dropped solvents from my rotation, and I've picked on playing with hydrophillic/phobic shit with plain cooking oil such as vegetable or canola, along with a bar of Dial brand soap, a coffee can of water, etc. I'm able to really fling paint around and get super messy and have good oil painting sessions out back on the patio. Also, I've dropped toxic pigments, (cadmium salts are fucking FUCKING BEAUTIFUL) but I smoke tobacco almost constantly and can't be bothered to keep hands washed in front of the canvas.

I once used low-odor mineral spirits, but eh, honestly, I just like the new soap method I happened across. I have to small orange canvases, painted primarily with D&R oils, with some W&N zinc or titanium white, and the canvases did dry firmly after about one to two weeks.
