I think that yes, adding some oil has a "retarder" effect

I do put my egg/oil paint in tubes and keep it for weeks (months :grin: ) that's one of the reasons I'm so fond of this formula, I'm not very good with all the fuss of making new paint each day (and I allways made too much, couldn't stand to throw it, ended overpainting everything in green for ex. if I had green left...)


while painting, the egg/oil takes longer to dry thant pure ET - I generally use very little paint, diluted with quite a lot of water - I love to sketch directly on the board/canvas, which I can't do with pure ET. If doesn't go right, I wipe it off with a wet piece of coton
