Oil paint in an art journal

Is oil painting a good media for Art Journaling, or it’s gonna take too long to dry up? I an just asking someone who actually tried it and it did or didn’t work that good.

Answer #1

Oil paints can take days even weeks to dry it. I don’t think its a good idea for art journaling. My last oil paint piece took just about two week to fully dry. Unless you can or will keep your journal open to dry for that long I would suggest something else. Why not try water soluable oil paints instead? They dry much faster than regular oil paints though it obviously works and paints a little differently, but the outcome can be similar to regular oil paints.
