Maroger FAQ's

Maroger FAQ's

David Leffel Maroger

How DO you pronounce Maroger?
We get this a lot. Take a deep breath and repeat: Mare-Oh-Jay. J as in Jacques Maroger.  (it's French!)

Why do I need Maroger?
Just as watercolorists use water to thin their paints, oil painters must use oil based mediums for the same reason. Use Maroger to thin your paints to a desired consistency to match your style of painting: wet into wet, wet over dry, glazing, sculpting and more.

How much Maroger do I mix into my paints?
Each brand of paint you buy in the store comes at a different consistency. Some are thick and stiff, others are thin and loose. Use Maroger to make all your paints uniform. Generally, oil painters prefer a consistency similar to that of mayonnaise, although thicker passages may require less medium and thinner passages require more. Watch Adding Maroger to Your Paint for more information.

I have a medium called Megilp. Is it the same as Maroger?
Megilp was the original name of Maroger Medium. However, medium produced today under the name of Megilp is most likely a plastic imitation of Maroger.

My Maroger is part liquid, part gel. Is there something wrong with it?
No. The liquid has the same properties as the gel and will not affect the performance of the medium. Painters often use loose Maroger to "oil-in" their canvas at the beginning of each day to revitalize matte or dried colors.
