Based on recent analysis of Leonardo’s oil painting and records he left, we recreated a formula that should be close to what the great master used more than 500 years ago.
Detailed chemical analysis Donna Nuda by Leonardo Da Vinci conducted in 2019 and published in Journal of Proteomics (Elsevier) showed that he used linseed oil as a binder, rosemary oil as a solvent and gums for durability and flexibility of a final film.
This oil thinner’s main ingredients are linseed and rosemary oils (that Leonardo used to dilute his paints) with some turpentine gum and lavender oil added (that he added into some painting layers for a better performance).
With more information available this thinner will be modified accordingly.
