I am curious to know about the strenght and flexibilty of venice turp and stand oil considering is thick viscous body and how well it ages and if it might actually help the paint film be a bit stronger if either of these are used as mediums with additions of normal turp and oil and if they may actually increase the strength of oil grounds(I make my oil grounds by hand with chalk,pigment,oil and a bit of alkyd etc.)

when it is unadulterated, is the sap extracted from the Larch tree. Resins that
retain their essential oils are called balsam (turpentine is an archaic term
for balsam. What we call turpentine was originally called essential oil of or
spirits of turpentine). However, most of what is sold as Venice or Venetian
turpentine is a mixture of larch balsam and rosin. The lowest grades are simply
rosin dissolved in a solvent. Rosin is a very poor material and should be considered
an adulterant. There are some suppliers that offer pure larch turpentine.
Even if pure there is really very little to recommend the
use of larch balsam as an addition to oil paint. It is really just another soft
resin. It yellows and becomes brittle over time. More importantly, it remains
sensitive to the solvents if the painting ever needs to be cleaned in the
future. As a general rule, oil painters should avoid adding soft resins to
their oil paint. Please see our downloadable pdf entitled Myths, FAQs,
and Common Misconceptions
which covers this
subject. If you feel that Venice Turp produces some quality that you find
essential (I would still recommend experimenting with other additives like
alkyd mediums) please include a list of your paint additives somewhere on the
painting (on the stretcher bars, etc) to guide future conservators.
