A Solution for Pungent Odors Degradation in Oil Painting
Based on Engineering Bacteria
It is the specialty of oil paints that endows oil paintings with such kinds of endurance. As a crucial part of oil paints, turpentine, the most common thinner of oil paints, allows great flexibility and depth of color of oil paints. By modifying the viscosity with turpentine oil, oil paints can be applied in various ways, from thin glaze to dense thick impasto, providing opportunities for blending and layering.
The primary constituent of turpentine is α-pinene, which accounts for over 80%.
