Oil ptg. Mediums and Thinners

Someone was asking about citrus mediums/paint thinners. Windsor Newton makes a product called Grumtine. Smells like oranges - love it!

"Hi Anya...I did finish this piece with some Inka Gold Metallic Rub by Viva. It is a beeswax-based product and works very nicely on cold wax."

FYI....I have discovered that when traveling, if you do not want to drag a palette along with you, Yupo paper works fabulously. I have been using the same sheet in FL for 2 months and it is as strong as when I first started. Well, it is made of plastic. Also it has never curled at the edges.

Orange oil

Does anyone know what kind of orange oil to use as a solvent for scraping back on paintings? I've heard it works very well, but I don't know where to find it or the brand to buy. Thank you.
