Talens supplies a large and very complete range of auxiliaries, essential for practically every painting technique. 
These auxiliaries are divided into mediums and varnishes. The auxiliaries are accurately geared to the specific requirements of each technique. They ensure a good technical composition and conservation of the work or change the properties of the artists' paint.

Talens mediums and varnishes are suitable for turpentine solvent oil colors.
