Acrylic / Oil Brush Cleaner & Dilutant – Zest-it

R225.00R749.00

Zest-it Oil Paint Dilutant and Brush Cleaner are non-toxic solvents. Non-flammable, pleasant orangey/citrus smelling alternative to ‘turps’ and ‘white spirit’, used for thinning oil paint and cleaning brushes, it is ideal for safe studio use. The Zest-it Oil Paint Dilutant and Brush Cleaner is a much safer solvent for oil painters than Gum Turpentine and White Spirit and it has been an excellent replacement for many years.

It does not contain any Aromatics or CFC’s and it is non-flammable, non-toxic and biodegradable with low VOC’s and is, therefore, kinder to the environment. It can travel by road, sea and air, therefore an excellent accompaniment if you are going on a painting holiday (depending on the airline). The brush cleaner is reusable which makes it economical and a little goes a long way. Use it as a dilutant to thin oil paint, oil-based ink, oil pastels and wax pencils. Paints can be thinned ‘as thin as ink’ for under-painting a canvas or colouring a surface. Excellent for blending oil pastel, oil bars and paint sticks can be used to give a smooth finish, the same techniques can be used with wax-based media.

Zest-it® Acrylic Brush Cleaner

Clean the Acrylic paint and ink from your brushes and equipment with Zest-it Acrylic Brush Cleaner and then rinse with soap and water or wash under the tap. Cleans and revive those brushes stiff with acrylic paint – it will bring them back to life. Zest-it Acrylic Brush Cleaner will remove most paint and ink Acrylic based products. Zest-it Acrylic Brush Cleaner will also remove Acrylic from hard surfaces and canvas/paper.

Zest-it Wax Solvent

The Zest-it Cold Wax Solvent is a non-toxic, non-flammable fluid with a slight yellow colour. It has a mild orange smell from the Citrus Oil, it has low VOC’s, which means little is lost to the atmosphere and your workspace. It does not mix with water. Ideal for use with wax-based products for thinning, glazes and cleaning. It does not contain any Aromatics or CFC’s, it is classed as biodegradable and is, therefore, kinder to the environment. It can travel by road, sea and air, which makes it an excellent accompaniment if you are going on a painting holiday (depending on the airline). It is re-usable, which makes it economical and a little goes a long way. It is ideal for thinning Wax and Oil paint mixtures to change the handling qualities and for making glazes and drizzles. Use to clean brushes, painting knives, rollers, wedges, shapers and even surface mistakes from the canvas.

Have ‘safety sense’ when using any solvent. Use in a ventilated area, away from sparks and flames, do not heat the product.
Keep away from children, do not eat, drink or smoke when using the product (no water bottles in the same area!).

Dispose of any ‘wax/paint sludge’ by putting it onto damp sand or soil in a container.

It is an excellent solvent for Gum Damar and other resins for making varnish. You may have read that only turpentine will dissolve these resins, this has not been the case for many years, so you can use it to make your varnish if you wish. Zest-it Brush Cleaner can be used to make a standard “5 lb cut” varnish and dilute it down to your required strength. However, we would advise using the same diluent for dilution as mixing solvents could cause your varnish to go cloudy. Use it to make a medium by mixing with Linseed Stand Oil and Cold Pressed Linseed Oil. Your painting medium will be easier to make up if you add the Oil to the solvent and not the other way round. Linseed oils are very viscous and it takes a decent amount of ‘agitation’ for the two products to mix thoroughly. Painting mediums can be a personal ‘thing’ and the ratio of the mix is not fixed. If you are unsure, as a suggestion, try a 50/50 mix and adjust the proportions from there.

Use it for cleaning oil paint, oil colour, oil bars, oil pastels, oil-based ink, wax-based products, Damar varnish and other oil-based products from your brushes, palette, painting knives, rollers and equipment. The Zest-it Brush Cleaner has considerable active strength, meaning it is re-usable many times for brush washing. After use, allow the residue to settle and decant off the clear liquid, this saves on waste and makes it economical in use.

Dispose of ‘paint sludge’ by putting it onto damp sand or soil in a container.

Do not throw the liquid or brush washings down the sink.
