I used olive oil to clean my brushes whilst painting, will this ruin my oil painting? ?
I just discovered that olive oil has non drying properties, while oil painting I usually would have a tin, or cup of olive oil to dip my brush in to get pigment out before getting another color. I'd wipe the excess oil off with a towel, however, before getting more paint onto the brush. Since the oil soaks into the brush, would this tiny amount of olive oil ruin the painting all together when mixed with regular oil paints?
