The RCP mediums (Royal Copenhagen Porcelain), for the preparation of your colours with or without lead,
have an aqueous base and contain a mixture of alcohols. The 3 RCP mediums can be diluted with water.
The medium RCP 102 has the particularity of being non-drying. It is therefore particularly
appreciated for the technique of the wipe-out or american technique or in the framework of
achievements which must not dry quickly. For this technique we also use wipe-out tools (thin or large).
It is not necessary to use an oil or any drying retarder.
Like other mediums, it should be used little by little: avoid putting too much at once not to get a
too diluted colour and a mxiture that would be too liquid for your work. Use a dropper or glass
pipette to dose the amount of medium.
Shake your bottle well enough before using it. This medium can be used with lead or lead-free
Schjerning colours. Be careful during the application. If blows or dust were to get in contact
with the painting, they would be incorporated in the realization or even erase your work!
This medium dries slowly and it is important to preserve the item from any damage during the entire drying time.
