Quite honestly, I've not heard that negative report about Turpenoid,
something I'll toss around with my artist online community friends and see
what resources come up about it. As I said before, acrylic is perhaps
safest all the way around unless a room is relatively set up with decent
ventilation. Again...mixing the medium I suggested, you can have fun with
some oil like drag and impasto techniques using acrylics.
