Hello, I'm in need of a Chemist knowledgable about the oxidation of fine oil paints (pigments + linseed only, no additives). The scope of this project is to first provide feedback about an idea for an oxidation oven/machine to speed up oxidation of oil paint. To my knowledge, this doesn't exist specifically for this industry but oxidation ovens do exist for other industries (such as carbon fiber [obscured] /technologies/oxidation-ovens/). I need consulting advice on the following: -What are the variables that contribute to the oxidation of fine oil paint? (air pressure, temperature, humidity etc.) -Is it possible to speed up the oxidizing process by controlling environmental elements and without using chemical additives (such as driers found in most commercial oil paints)? -Could the technology used for oxidation of other materials be tweaked or transferred to oil painting? -What are the potential short and long term risks for using such a device on fine oil painting...
