I am just starting painting with oils and they come out of the tube so thick I'm having a hard time using them. Is there a way to thin the oils before you put paint on the canvas without using mineral spirits,because mineral spirits wet what is already on the canvas and causes streaks. Someone please help, I am getting frustrated and am trying painting as a way to relax. Thanks & Happy New Year.

@ thoughtfulgirls2 - I have gotten some linseed oil and it has really helped me alot, I am learning from Bob Ross DVDs and he uses a liquid white to cover the canvas, it is called wet on wet ... anyway I will def check out your hub. TY for the ansr
