    Question: How Can I Speed Up the Drying Time of an Oil Painting?
    "I have to ship some paintings, and the linseed oil is drying very slowly (obviously). Is there any way to speed up the drying time? Heat and air aren't working!" -- Sky

    Answer:

    I'm afraid there's not much you can do once the painting is actually finished to speed up the oils drying, other than applying gentle heat, which you're already doing. You needed to have used some rapid-drying medium in the painting.

    All I can suggest is to put the paintings under a lamp no closer than about 10 inches, you don't want to cook the paint.
